The Road

Oct 19, 2014

If you were on the road to nowhere,
where would you go?
If you were on the road to somewhere,
would you stay where you are?
If there was no road,
what would you do?
If the road was there,
would you carry on walking?
If the road you walked upon,
was somebody else’s,
would you leave?
If the road you took,
leads to the end of yours,
would you bother turning back?
What would YOU do,
if the feet that led you,
took you onto a road,
that you didn’t know about?

  1. The road we took last week was up a twisting narrow road on the Long Mynd in Shropshire – the road led to breathtaking scenery

  2. Another great photo with an insightful poem to accompany it. Reading the poem, I was reminded of a visit to the Isle of Skye where I came across a book called Calum’s Road. It is a true story about a local man who over 30 years single-handedly built a road for his local community after the local authority refused several times to build it. The road is famous today as Calum’s Road and has been featured in a BBC documentary. A true story of vision of grit and determination. Calum was a local hero several times over.
