Daily Prompt: The Road Less Traveled


There were just two roads in the woods for me.

I saw that one was short and the other long,

The former was free and I clearly see;

Trip through the latter could take a yearlong.

I was confused which way to go in life:

Both roads were neatly tarred and beautiful,

But I feared that the ends were torn by strife

Or that I could face a tough life struggle.

I chose the shorter road though but was scared.

Halfway I realized it was less traveled:

“I’ve erred and can’t dare the end,” I declared.

“It’s short but lack what I need,” I grumbled.

My judgement had cost me time and effort,

Now I’ll retrace my path for my comfort.
