31 DAYS OF POETRY- DAY 12- I MUST DANCE- by Akan Udofia

I must dance while the music of life beats
Can't always achieve the things hoped for
It's a long journey from home to destiny
Had to dress the bed before I lay on it
There is no specific direction or pathway to life
Every day fate I embraced with open arms
To wade away the guilt of an indecisive mind
Strife long overdue but the heart got to tag along
And harvest from sacrifices long made
For a man to be fulfilled and accomplished
Of a long journey away from home
