Paths Poem by Athena Macknight


Your life is a path
not a paved one
It has a lot of bumps
ditches
and every once in a while
your path comes to a fork
which path do you choose
the paved path
that leads you right back where you started
the paved path which seems to be easy but is actually harder
this is the path everyone takes
but are they truly happy
Or do you take the unpaved path
the path less taken
the path that leads to change
but also leads to pain
you are in control of the wheel
Don't worry about messing up
Don't worry about failing
Just keep driving
