It does no good to think about roads that we don’t follow.
The ones we take are filled with life, the ones we don’t are hollow.
The past can be a vessel that we fill time and again
distracting us from drinking draughts from the life we’re in.
Regrets are petals thrown upon a river rushing past.
Better to exhaust our funds on flowers that will last.
A person always looking back is one that must be led.
A more proactive pose to take is facing straight ahead.
The Prompt: The Road Less Traveled––Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.
