Was this the Right Path

Jack Ace

Is this path right one? 

For years, I thought it was.

Unquestioningly so.

But as of late, I feel seeds of doubt beginning to sprout and blossom within the very soil of my soul. Has chasing down this glorious possibility, this future which cascades with honey so sweet I blush at the smallest taste.

Have I denied possibilities?

How many thought fondly of me? How many wished to lead me to paradise, only to be shrugged off in my pursuit of what I believed to be the only proper path?

Have I absconded my own happiness in my pursuit for that very thing?

And at the gates of this hopeful future, will I be chosen?

Or will I be cast aside in the wake of another? Again.

    Hi! I'm new to all of this as well so don't worry, you're not the only one. This poem reminded me a little of Frost's "The Road Not Taken." Really nicely done!
