The poem(s) are below...



The path of life is criss-crossed 
with many intersections:

A fork in the road forces you 
to choose a diversion:
Ahead Left or 
Ahead right.

A T-junction has a Stop Sign.
Look Right, Look Left, 
No way forward,
Choose one or the other.

The U turn offers a way back
to unwind and retrace.

The Detour is a diversion,
a time-out for reflection.

The Slip Road offers a way 
into, or out of, the rat race.

At a Cross Road there are three choices:
Left, Right, or then again: 
Straight Ahead,
Steady as she goes.

The Overpass is a cop out, 
dodging the Cross Road decision.
