My Hankie (scribbles in solitude - 14)

22 May 1982

hankie 14

My life has always been on crossroads
… I am aware I could face only one road at a time
- and follow only one direction
Oftentimes it is easier to turn back
to familiar sights and ever-welcoming people,
To those which thoughts I have pushed into that
corner of my heart where I keep such things
as memories of childhood, affections for
people long gone, and things best forgotten.
Yet, I know all along that in that shrine of my
being everything is always cherished and
But, at the most inconvenient moments of my life,
I have always acted against my heart’s desires
Here you are,
Just as I am seeing another crossroad beyond
We would walk together for only a short
while, though
For fortunately (or unfortunately in a sense)
for you,
Your crossroad comes ahead
And, as usual, I would have to cross mine
on my own …
