The Road Not Taken- The Reincarnation
By Joe DeMarco
TWO paths emerged in greenish pasture
And since it was impossible to go down both
I thought which way would get me to my destination faster?
And wondered if speed was important when running the race
Isn’t it objective that matters and not the pace?
I went down the beaten path with grass so long
Which was dark and twisting, with no end in sight
And even though I stood tall and strong
I wondered if I had wandered wrong
And philosophized if there was such a thing as wrong or right
Although each path was equally unstable
The one I strayed down had more twists and turns
Oh I kept the second path for another fable
Yet knowing how stall leads to stable
I was certain I would never return
I revisit this with a pondering thought
And years from now reflecting on the past
Two paths diverged and still I fought
And took the one that’s hardly sought
And that has made my happiness so much more vast.
