The Fork In The Road - Poem by Stephen Taylor

I came upon a fork in the road
Left or right, fate untold
So I stood for a moment,
And pondered my case
I came to realize
I had come to that place

A simple decision
Left or right
And the man I am
Will then come to light

I saw a sign each
In front of the roads
Explaining the rules
If that I should go

To the left
Carry not coin or purse
Faith will be your guide
Come better or worse

To your right
Collect riches and friends along the way
But, whichever path you choose
There you must stay

I chose the right path
My life was full and gay
I wish I had taken the left
Why? I cannot say.
