The Crossroads

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

    Enjoyable read, how many times have we headed down the wrong road only to turn around and find the right path. A moment to to stop and mediatate could save us a lot of detours.
