“Two Ways” by *m-eralp

 

 

 

CONSIDERING THE FORKS IN THE ROAD

 

Considering the choices
I’ve had along the way,
some so clearly marked
by signs and lights,
illuminated so bright
and no mistaking the way
and some not so clear,
the path rather dim,
I wonder now
if it really matters at all
what direction I take
when I reach that inevitable
fork in the road;
a choice to be made,
which path to take
through the deep forests
and mountain passes of this life,
to get to where I want to be
when the sun goes down
at my journey’s end.


And in another time and place
(not so long ago I’d like to think)
I wondered what I might have missed
(if anything at all)
by going this way or that,
or whether or not
I’d have another chance
to retrace or erase
those steps I’ve taken
and start my trek
all over again.


But I must conclude,
upon considering the choices,
that the most important thing
to me in the end
is that I took
at least one step
in whatever direction
and persevered to
wherever the path led,
that I didn’t get stuck
(or at least not for too long),
forever stopped in my tracks,
unable to decide on a path
at a fork in the road.

  1. I think we often wonder had we chosen another path in life, if things would be better, or worse, for us. Marvelous write Barbara. God bless.

    Indeed we often do. And sometimes it takes a long time to come to a point of accepting where we are and how we got there and continuing to move forward with no regrets. Glad to be able to share this artist’s thought-provoking painting with these words. Thanks so much, Jean! :love: :love: :love:
