Like a kitten lost on a stormy day,
I stood cowering beneath the trees.
It didn't help it was a foggy day,
My eyes now straining to see.
The future ahead so uncertain,
No skills, no plans can help.
Crystal balls? hah! It's quartz in vain,
I can only sit and stay put.
As the storm raged on above the trees,
Fed up, yet scared, I stood.
Shaking my fears and my damp shoes,
A leap of faith I took.
Choices, choices, paths all around,
All so hazy and treacherous.
All lead somewhere,one way or the other,
Yet life is "Leave-all-but-one".
A few steps ahead I did take yes,
On a path my feet chose, cold and wet.
But they stopped for a moment so my eyes could gaze,
At those hazy paths that I never took.
My feet moved forward, grimly determined,
But looking back,my heart gently wept.
