Crossroads In Life
People are afraid of the crossroads in life.
For many can’t handle the turmoil and strife.
There’s one important thing they need to know,
It’s the turmoil and strife that helps them to grow.
There are certain things most people will automatically do.
These are the milestones all doctors watch babies and children go through.
Gain weight, correct motor skills like-turn over, sit up,
crawl, talk, walk and run.
For most parents, watching and waiting for these are a lot of fun.
School things are next- passing each grade, dating, dances and
Junior and Senior proms.
A big one is graduation, and then to college they go on.
Then come the biggest ones of your life,
Your career and whether or not you want a husband or wife.
Without even thinking about it, these crossroads came,
And for most people they were either easy or with a lot of pain.
Then you have to decide where to live and whether to buy or rent,
To have children or not, which way will make you content.
Some call these crossroads, and to others they are stages,
But it’s OK to need and get help and not go into rages.
It doesn’t mean you are crazy or weak,
If you can’t handle it and help you seek.
