Roads That Lead Nowhere

A world of paths and winding ways,

There are roads that lead to endless days,

They remind us with promises unknown,

To places where we’re meant to roam.

The roads that lead nowhere, they say,

Hold secrets that will light our way,

For in the journey, we may find,

The treasures hidden deep inside.

With each step taken, we may learn,

Lessons that make our spirits yearn,

To embrace the unknown, the uncharted lands,

And discover the magic in life’s shifting sands.

Though these roads may seem to go astray,

They guide us closer, come what may,

For it’s not the destination that truly matters,

But the adventures found in the roads that lead nowhere.

So let us wander, without a care,

Along these paths, a blissful affair,

For in the journey, we’ll come to see,

The beauty of life’s serendipity.

In the winding roads that lead us astray,

We’ll find ourselves in unexpected ways,

Embracing the unknown, with hearts laid bare,

We’ll find our purpose in the roads that lead nowhere.
