Our own

There are a great many pathways

Throughout our life we encounter

The road taken: is often mistaken

Romantically as correct direction

Just as often we simply ride it out

In part to avoid some humiliation

Unbeknownst- the world- knows

Oh! The unwinding irony at play  

We’ll live as if it’s still- our secret    

As if it be shameful to turn around

Or embark some alternative route    

As I’ve learned along these byways

We can choose to follow inner truth

Only take a path left…undiscovered

One thought on “Our own

  1. “Only take a path left…undiscovered” that’s exactly what I have been trying to do for a while now and it can be very satisfying to take a path no one else has.
