Crossroads - Poem by MELVIN 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?
