Paths not meant to be trodden
roads never meant to be taken
trails not open to any one
still we can’t resist partaking.
Mountains not meant to be scaled
waterfalls off limits
but who can resist an adventure
wander lusting and wishing.
Views too close to be seen
often teetering on a ledge
signs warning to keep clear
from danger on the edge.
She knew to stay away
there was so much indecision
but once touched she was gone
the pleasure became an addiction.
Sometimes the most desired things
are those that are hidden
but how can something so delicious
Indulgences. Adventures. We all crave them, we all succumb to them.
Whether its scaling a gate and walking through a Do not Pass sign and down an unmade track that leads to a gorgeous waterfall that we might otherwise have missed. Yes, that was me!
Whether it’s indulging in sinful cake, our choice of ale or maybe something more extravagant and naughty. Or that second or third piece of sinfully dark chocolate … yes, guilty me again.
Have you been naughty or nice this year? If you’re like me, you’ve been both. So let’s embrace it! Whatever our indulgence, how can we resist?
Let’s enjoy a bit of fun and not be afraid to take a risk or two. Enjoy those treats and pleasures in life, in moderation perhaps, but still enjoy them.
After all, life is meant to be lived. And we only live once.
