Thinking my journey was over
I stand facing another decision
And I haven’t a clue
Do I go left or right?
Which way do I choose?
I cannot go straight through
An unexpected twist
A bump in this road
for which I was not ready 
Confusing, mystifying 
All these things do bode
I am feeling unsteady
This crossroads in life
will make me sit awhile
Pondering my own questions
Where am I meant to be?
This way or that way?
Open to suggestions
I recalled an expression
From long ago
A saying of some wit
It went something like this
When you come
to a fork in the road ...take it
