The Road Not Taken

As we travel along life’s highway
A wealth of choices we’re compelled to make
As we’re faced with fate’s many crossroads
And we have to determine, which road to take

Roads that determine who we meet and love
What we do, and who we are
Roads where the journey’s a short one
Roads that take you far

Quite often, our choice is the right one
And the road leads to where we’re meant to be
But now and then it can be a dead end
And we need life’s breakdown recovery

To take us back to where we faltered
To journey down the road we’d forsaken
But who knows what the toll can be 
For delay on ‘The Road Not Taken.’

    Great writing. These words, I'm sure speak to many. As we all are faced daily with choices, to choose from, not knowing the out come of them, untill time shows us the results. Thanks for sharing.
