Caught between the crossroads
My mind was boggled…..I couldn't choose.
Both ways led to happiness,
But one I’d eventually lose.
Both were marked by beauty
That was bestowed by God above;
And as I stood there so confused
I yearned to find my true love.
Baffled I took a step forward
And I followed the path to the right,
But halfway through I realized
That the other one was equally fine
So I turned and headed back,
Back to the point where the crossroads did meet.
Now I hesitated to take the other road
since I knew that I would soon retreat.
I sat myself down and took off my bag,
My head just throbbing due to the heat
I sipped on some water and quenched my thirst,
As I stretched my aching feet
Then suddenly a gust of wind blew in my face…
The dust blinding me momentarily;
When I opened my eyes….I realized
the crossroads were gone…… a straight road remained
