March 21, 2010 - Two Paths

 
Two Paths

There is a path that leads you home
With direction that is clear
Right beside it lies another path
And it's so very near

These two upon first glance
Appear to be the same
And as you ponder which to choose
They both call out your name

As you gaze upon the view
And determine which to take
Oft' times the straight and narrow
You quickly will forsake

Now the beauty of the second path
It shines with such a light
Beaming down on all you want
'Til you forget what's right

With great haste you find yourself
Strolling right along
Heading down the second path
That doesn't lead you home

The second path I speak of
That seems so brightly lit
It soon turns into darkness
And your way you will forget

So if you find yourself there walking
In all darkness and in fear
Remember, there's still the first path
And it lies so very near

We choose , and often we don't realize , once chosen we can't go back--
Beautifully written

Wonderful ! We see what we like to see,our desires hide the view.. but if we are aware, we see what is there really. Sometimes it could be a one-way, a path of no return...It could be a tragedy...What a lovely poem! Ty for the post!!

"So if you find yourself there walking
In all darkness and in fear
Remember, there's still the first path
And it lies so very near"
A wonderful piece Neva...The right path is there for us to follow should we choose to travel it...M
