A Path I Didn't Take

Too many roads diverged in a tense arena

And I used to wonder what it would be like to travel all.

Could I be Engineering? Astrophysics? Analyst? Architect? Chemist?

Or Pharamacist? Producer? Practicioner? Novelist?


For months and years I truly did gaze as much as I could see

And I pondered the potential of what could be.

I yearned day and night to travel each path,

But I knew there had to be only one I could take.


I decided to take the one less traveled by

And, oh, how it rings true,

How I’d’ve wished to walk all the others at dawn.

And I wonder what peace and pain I would endure  

If I had traveled them all before the fall of night.


I have learned and seen from Frost that life brings challenges,

And there are many paths that one may choose

And from Frost I have learned that, really,

A single decision in life can make all the difference.
