This was written at a time in my life when I was being laid off from work. And it is still relevent, today.

Turning Point

The day is ending
   I cannot see
The path ahead
  Which will be


The new direction
  I will take,
The new choices
  I will make


I sadly see
  An era end,
Which sadly leaves
  Behind my friends


This turning point
  In my road
Will be the future
  To unfold


Ahead I must
  Go and see
The new beginnings
  Which will be


© March, 1988, S. K. Smith

Your poem is very relevant today. I can feel the pendulum of layoffs swinging closer to my head, but your poem gives me hope. When one door slams closed, maybe a new adventure, new life awaits through another.

I have been very fortunate never to have experienced this, Susan. I do appreciate the tone of your verses and I like the way the poem ends on a hopeful note. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Hello Susan,

Like an open door, this poem reveals a lot more to see than what was left behind. Like Abraham, sometimes God lets us leave Ur and Haran, to have our "turning points" with Him, and to give us greater assignments.

Blessings to you,

All the good-bye's and all the new hello's seem to work hand in hand. Sometime things happen for a reason and soon the reason is revealed. Yes, there are many crossroads, or turning points as you say, but it is always how we choose to react that makes the difference. Nice writing...

Be always safe,
