On the one way path of life
No one can go very far.
There are so many detours and,
Alternate routes to take,
Different choices to be made,
Different decisions for different people.
Most people take the path straight ahead of them.
So, why does this happen, you may ask.

To too many people change is feared,
Now things are never tried throughout the years.
The path they take is right in front,
Always there, always the same.
And then one day, their path comes to an end.
"Why so soon?" they say. "I still have more to travel"
But the choices that were made,
Kept them in a repetitious cycle of life.

Never did they think of which route to take,
As if they all met up at the end.
Though as you know, that couldn't be so.
