Journey Back…#252

Leave Yesterday Behind…

At the edge of the woods lay two paths

One lead to the future, the other to the

Past.  I peered into the woods to see

What lay beyond, one path seem short the

Other long.

One path lead to a meadow it was long

Well worn, a far-away meadow, the journey

Would be fast.  The other less traveled, covered

With growth I could not see where it

Would go, it was the one into the future,

That I know.

Down in the meadow were creeks, old

Houses, pets and people I knew from

The past, I was confident that I could

Travel with ease this well-worn path.

 I looked into the woods and let out a

Sigh, and stepped into the unknown,

I did not know why.  I took one more look

At the past, in truth I knew that I could

Never go back.

The future, was where my destiny I would

Find, it was time to move on, it was time to

to move on, it was time to leave yesterday

behind?
