A real gem of a poem arrived in yesterday’s inbox, thanks to guest writer Tim Dooling for the submission:

a different path
(by i c daily)

oh, what is this inside of me some thing that needs direction
to force my way to destiny
just so i can say i won

when that’s all said and done
and i think of the good and the bad
was it worth the cost to be number 1
and take for granted what i had

asking the light and the dark this question
i search and search for the answer
and find there is no solution
so i choose a different path to find her
