Move


The prompt this week at Verse First is "Move" based on:

March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.
~ by Khalil Gibran




I came upon that forked road
And suddenly I stopped
I couldn't tell which one to take
From one to the other I hopped

The left looked better than the right
Until I stepped upon that path
And then on the other I saw a light
Drawn to it I was like a moth

Take the right no take the left
My mind cried out in glee
Created confusion all around
Like a boat tossed on a rocky sea

In the end it doesn't matter
Whichever one we walk
Each road it leads to our destiny
Move on, don't stop or baulk!

~x~


Life throws many wrinkles
Like forked roads in our way
It can be sweet like chocolate sprinkles
When boldly our fears we allay

  1. Really enjoyed this one Suzy. How confused we can get when it comes to choosing our path, as your poem states "each road leads to our destiny".

    1. Thanks Lisa. I have a very wise friend who constantly reminds me that every path is the right path. I've learned that too, over the years.

    Whichever one we walk

    Each road it leads to our destiny

    Move on, don't stop or baulk!

    1. I was the same Leo, until I reached a point in life where I suddenly realised that every choice we make is the right choice, every path we walk is the right one.

  5. Smiling at once a decision was made the other looked more exciting! You are right though, "Each road it leads to our destiny".

  6. Interesting take on the great Robert Frost poem... kind of a reversal from "I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference."

    1. Thanks Steven. Strange you mention Robert Frost as his poem came to mind as I wrote mine. The road less travelled could definitely reveal some wonders, but the familiar road can also be the right one.

  7. Enjoyed your updated version of Frost's "Road Not Taken"--very nice! :)

    1. Thanks Martha. Each path is shown to us by Him is our path - our destiny - left or right it doesn't matter. They are both His paths. Blessings to you too.

  15. I like your fork in the road advice, Suzy. My sister says to always take the left option and you'll get where you are going faster because more people will be taking the right turn. I.e. more crowded, longer lines, etc on the right way.

    I hope your sprinkles are chocolate.

    1. Thanks Jim - I will remember the left option the next time I'm at a forked road. Chocolate sprinkles sounds divine :)
