Two Paths - Poem by Nicholas Licul

walking across the infinity
its just you and me
in the desert age
stands before us a sage
in a soft passionate straightforward voice
the wise man speaks
up ahead you have a choice
a crossroad for what he seeks..

upon which road should i tread
said tenderly in dread...
for that is not my ruling to make
you decide which to take...
instantaneously as the man disappeared
a crossroad became apparent
in which direction should i veer?

a quarrel in my head
i cant seem to decide
an out of sight eagle feather shed
or a slithery snake guide?

escorted into the cobras cave
i was overcome by a cold wave
sending chills down the spine
knees buckling in due time
guide nowhere in sight
I'm afraid
there is no light

i continue into this maze
going deeper
into the smokey haze
of the reaper

with no end in sight
the sage was brought to light
in a soft passionate straightforward voice
the wise man speaks
up ahead you have a choice
a crossroad for what he seeks...

once again as the wise man disappears into the light
a crossroad was immediately in sight
...an out of sight eagle feather shed
or a slithery snake guide?
trusting the out of sight instead
the slithery snake was denied
as i proceeded to stride

traveling upstream
upon the mountain of dream
sensing the eagle above
a place not barren of love

shortly reaching the peak
the sage is waiting
with words to speak

first you walk upon the path
of destruction and wrath
then i came along
giving you a second chance
realizing you chose wrong
unguided you decided to advance
now here we stand
with all that is grand
tell me what have you learned
from this endeavor you adjourned

do not trust what seems easy
although there was a guide
he was sleazy
just because the eagle was out of sight
doesn't mean he wasn't there
high above in flight
fully aware
