Decisions

by on February 16, 2014

“To me, Robert Frost has been one of the greatest inspirations. ‘The Road Not Taken’ is perhaps the reason why I started writing poetry in the first place. But there is something that has always bugged me a little. If I were to come across the great crossroads in my life, I might not be able to make my decision quite so simply.”

Decisions

I see two roads that diverge here
They want to test my state of mind
They ask of me, solidity
To leave repentance behind

Though as one grows to love his sorrow
As have I, to leave my strife
But troubled and befuddled minds
Can’t quite seem to make this stride

The burden of the moment rises
The grey ahead is far too black
The ability to predict my fate
The gods of my fortune lack

Such divergence isn’t new
The feared say in a fearless voice
Nonetheless, as clichés go
My traveler ought to make his choice

Before the first of a thousand miles
I see two roads that shake me through
The butterfly that is my guide
Reminds me there is much to do
