Wondering Of The Road Not Taken - Poem by Atsiylah Atty Garfinkel

Do you ever wonder about that 'road not taken'?
Where would you be if your path was the other?
If you had gone on that trip to Europe that year,
if you had gone with the band would you be another?
Or is our fate already chosen, are we here to stay?
Can we cut fates cords by our choices each day?

If I'd taken that road trip, or stayed in school,
if I'd married someone else, if I'd obeyed the rules.
Who are we to say this wasn't part of the plan,
I believe my life and fate is in God's hand.

I don't know what it is He wants from me,
but if I wait, I bet I'll get where I'm supposed to be.
Do you ever wonder about the 'road not taken'?
Is this life really ours for the making?

    Yes, I wonder too, but I think that as a person I would not have changed that much. I think that we have a lot of choices and that, no matter which one we choose, the results most likely would be about the same. I do not believe in fate. We are free but it is a limited freedom. (Report) Reply

    Yup! I've wondered many times about the choices I made in the past. I like this poem. It makes me evaluate my life. A 10 for you. (Report) Reply
