The Choice You Fare

Looking down the yellow brick road

What do I see upon this journey?

Where could I head without guidance?

Will I find my way back home?


There is no courage to face the unknown,

I have no heart to love what is.

Without a brain, I cannot think,

I can only hope to find my home.


With the fears and doubts that builds,

It’s time to look into the looking glass.

Revel in the image that tells no lies,

Find the truth within these trials.


Feel the courage in the strength of your stare

Accept the love in your questioning care

Give life to your brain as you become aware.

You will be home in the choice you fare

Submitted to dVerse for the Wizard of Oz theme.
I couldn’t pick one character, so I included them all for the journey.

  1. Combining all three characters in your poem worked well here as it represented the many different obstacles we face in life’s path. Many obstacles are self-made. A beautiful, reflective piece.
