Around the Bend

This is my contribution to the 1000 word meme for the week. I hope you enjoy it!

I wonder what’s around the bend. You can almost see, but not quite. Ah, the unknown! It beckons, and yet frightens at the same time.

Do I have the courage to go around the bend? It doesn’t look threatening. Then again, looks can be deceiving.

There could be treasures around the bend; flowers in perfect bloom, kittens playing in the leaves, children laughing and dancing. Or there could be a mad dog.

My true love might wait around the bend; with long flowing blonde hair, blue eyes, and lips of luscious red. Ready to take me in her arms forever and carry me away on the winds of passion. But what if there’s a mugger there instead?

Around the bend. What waits around the bend? Life is full of uncertainty. Sometimes it really is a matter of faith. Take the first step! Go around the bend.

human beings always are quite wary about bends, right..?

Yep, alot of times we are. The unknown is scary, but sometimes the best things are waiting on the other side of the bend.

You took me with you in your thoughts.

It's the bends we need to walk, most of the time.

Yes it is. Sometimes the best things in life take the most courage to find.
