Two roads

Two roads diverged in the wood, and I took the one more traveled.

At first, it seemed easy. Smooth paths full of fake company – stars full of bottled glow – made it easy. Conversation with the sky flowed as time passed in a haze, gradually getting steeper without my realizing it.

But then as night descended, as the storm blew in and the stars fell, the road more traveled became a ghost town of loneliness and despair. In this agony, I realized. My mistake was thinking that the road more traveled was the right path for me – that this road full of fake company and bottled stars suited everyone.

But I am not everyone. So I turned back.

Two roads diverged in the wood. I took the one less traveled. And it was glorious.

  1. It requires courage to go back and change your path because not everyone is able to do that even when they know that they belong somewhere else.
