The fork in the road looms ahead,

Imposing, intimidating,

And as I, daunted, approach,

I hesitate


My pulse quickens, heart races

Desperate mind seeks to analyse

The road best travelled

And still


All the concrete data in the world

Could not convince me,

My head clouded by doubt,



The distance shrouded in shadow,

The future a hazy mystery,

How can I choose when it affects

My destiny?
