Alternative voicing: The Road Less Traveled by the Oprah Guest

Two roads diverged in the woods of my life,
I’d been down one of those roads before,

And it takes all the inner strength I can muster
To not repeat that debilitating, self-destructive behavior again.

Two roads diverged in the woods of my life,
And I took the more fulfilling one, and you can
Read in my new book* how that has made all the difference.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
