A Choice Made - Poem by EZEKIEL HARUNA DANBAKI

Two roads start in a green wood
God and men long they stood
Men were given a choice to make
A choice of path for them to take

Two roads diverged in the undergrowth
But God cautioned 'you can't travel both'
First is bushy, thorny for only fewer feet has trodden
As for the passings there had the second broaden

Men ignored the first but the second was as fair and on the left it lies
And men beheld it though with passion in their eyes I say this with a sigh for the left was their claim
Even in their hearts that choice was the same

Also in their eyes was the look of happy bright
In the strides of their steps they felt the choice was right
The wrong path they thought was one less travel by
But today and tomorrow see what of them is left

Sad eyes
Sad days
Sad hearts
Sad face

Sad today
Sad tomorrow
And every day
Sad sorrow

Sad them
Sad everything
Sad them
Sad ending!

    You are right, very often the broad road, the easier life style takes you to deep trouble and you will find the life has
    Become un bearable, too full of misery, and will lead you to a sad end. Very good writing, keep it up.thanks for sharing.
