Which Path?


Have you been in a forest
Following a path well-known
Someone crosses in front
A new path is now shown.

Do you follow a stranger
Forget about the safe way
Maybe a little distraction
Someone new leads away.

Do you follow head or heart
Can you keep from being hurt
After all they caught your eye
An innocent meaningless flirt.

Is it wrong to walk the safe path
Knowing someone waits ahead
Maybe not quite adventurous
But keep from hurting instead.

    “But keep from hurting instead.” – This line speaks a lot for me.
