CROSSROADS


CROOSROADS
MELVIN D. BANGGOLLAY


Shall I follow the stream
Or cross the bellowing sea
In my desire to dream
And behold a destiny
Full of gold and honey?

Or can I just sail away
In the ocean of life mystery
Without a prayer to say
Or just rely on my ability
To withstand any malady?

What road I will take then
In order not to be forsaken?
Shall I go to the right for a fight?
Take the left for a cake
Or remain just where I’m staked?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
