The Road


The road you choose to follow
Determines the destination you arrive,
The destination you arrive at,
Is dependent on the choices you made
While walking through the road

The road could be straight and calm
Like an Olympic-sized swimming pool
Or turbulent like the waves of
The Ocean on a stormy day.
The road is always uncertain.

Think it through, if you are a pilgrim
Walking on the road to destiny.
Ponder it over again, for
There’s a consequence for every
Decision you’ll make in this Journey.

The road could be hazy and blurred
Like a dingy, dark and cobwebby room
Or clear like crystals reflecting in a mirror
“Choose wisely my dear so
You can reach before dusk.
