DIFFERENT PATHS

images (2)

 

“Tiny trails

Spiraling out

Of this shaded wood;

Going down to

Different paths.

 

That path goes

To that mountain yonder

Lush, green and inviting;

This leads to

The town in distance

Busy, gleaming and bustling.

 

That one goes

To the village near

Ploughed fields on both sides;

And that one

Leads to the frontier

Dreamy in distant trysts.

 

But this path

They say

Leads to nowhere;

Silence hangs on it

Deep, dark and bare.

 

No one is seen

On it ever;

But the path is there

Going down

They say to nowhere.

 

It’s the path

They say

Which is walked in darkness;

When all are sleeping

And none is moving.

 

Few have traveled

This path

But all paths;

They say are there

Because of this path to nowhere.”
