Sunday Writing Prompt – The End of the Road – March 28th

As it got closer he wondered

If the end of the road was what it claimed

Or was it the start of a new road?

He could see it looming before him

There was something immovable about it.

Beyond it was a murky mass.

Was it the road less taken

Or the road most taken?

Could he sample both before deciding?

Or was it simply an abyss

From which there was no returning?

He decided there was an inevitability

He could fight it or go with the flow.

So he girded up his loins

Stepped forward knowing that no matter what

He had to face the future.

After all it was Tuesday

And things happened on Tuesday.

    I think he made the right choice. I would have said that things happened on Monday, but I guess his experience was different.

  2. Patricia says:

    Might as well walk on and face the future. The future shows up no matter what we decide to do.

    Nothing ventured – nothing gained. Hmmm look before you leap. He who hesitates is lost… fools rush in where angels fear to tread. I’m glad he wasn’t given to proverbs, he might not have taken the first step.
    How are you going, Michael? Were you impacted by the floods up on the North Coast area?
