I Am Choosing You

too many choices, too many paths, which way to go

we never know

I’ve traveled to many places and met different faces

some travels made me triumphant,

some made me a failure

some faces brought out the best in me

but some unleashed the beast warrior in me

I’ve fought some battles; some I lost,

some I won

I trust the process, I trust the rhythm of nature and of the universe

I laughed, I cried

I succeeded, but I failed too

but of all the choices I made, of all the paths I took

and of all the places I traveled

faces I met

I’m glad I took the courage to choose

the choice I had to make

take the path I had to take

to travel the place I had to travel

to meet the one I had to keep

I am choosing the road

that leads

to you

I am choosing you

Day 2 Prompt

And now, for today’s (optional) prompt. In the world of well-known poems, maybe there’s no gem quite so hoary as Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about your own road not taken – about a choice of yours that has “made all the difference,” and what might have happened had you made a different choice.
