‘Roads not taken’ by Valerie Parks

I have always taken
the road most traveled,
safe and familiar.
As I traveled these roads
they have become
more and more narrow.
I wish I had chosen
that other road
stepped into mystery
and adventure.
I can not go back,
the road behind
has disappeared.
I wait for another
fork in the road
and hope I have
the courage to
explore the unknown.
