Writing Prompt: Ode to a Stranger

Write an ode to a stranger you saw on the street

You stand in pure concentration
staring at the road sign above you.
Which way should you take?
Which path will lead you to your destination?

Life is not lost on you
though onlookers may assume.
You are on a specific journey,
one you alone are traveling in.

I watch you contemplate
somewhere between happiness and gloom.
You finally choose, turning right
an I am left to wonder where you are off to.

Blessings on the path you take,
a unique one paved just for you.
Forget what was behind and
walk forward in His grace.
