The road I travelled just made me fly.
I journeyed through some mountains rare.
But then I came to find it stopped!
There was no road ahead.
I could turn off towards the left –
it’d take me off to who knows where!
Yet too I had an option speak to me
to seek the right which led me back
to places where I could expand
and be myself, yet more.
And there I sat, I made no choice!
I could not choose that which is unknown.
I dithered often, but still was stuck
within a car that once had run
with furious pleasure yet now was trapped,
just sitting waiting as my heart felt torn.
I woke up to a horn’s demand!
Another traveler on the road.
He too was trapped behind my “stuck”.
How could I move, I could not choose
It seemed so simple, yet,
my heart it sighed – I could’ve died,
still waiting for the road ahead
to open wide and let me be
to run with fun into the sun,
upon a road no longer there.
So there I prayed for courage – strength,
to cease this choice that froze my dare,
and make a move both bold and rare.
-a choice to start again with flair!
So, once again with fresh delight
I’ve opened up some doors.
Not bound by indecision – to soar!
