The Road Less Traveled: What’s Traveled is Traveled

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us OTHER.

Hell Yeah
What’s Traveled is Traveled

So many paths to tread It’s hard to know

which ways I should have chosen & which roads

would have been best for me & mine to roam.


So many schools & teachers I have seen.

So many chances given me & yet,

I chose & chose again to walk alone.

Defiant of the rules they would impose,

I walked, I tripped, I fell, but carried on.


Perhaps if I’d succumbed to one of them,

I would now find myself in better stead.

More discipline & some authority

& maybe I would be a brighter star,

to shine for those who follow like I did.


I cannot tell if how I’ve lived was worse

or not, or more or less, than could have been,

but in my heart I know that I have tried

to walk an honest path & leave a trail

of light & love & truth along the way.


What’s gone is gone & what is done is done

& as my future life is just in sight,

I’m happy with my choices, confident

that everything is just as it should be.

No need to question what I cannot see.
