I Choose. .

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 
Robert Frost

If you’re in form5 before 2011, this poem sounds familiar, right? This poem strikes me when I realize what it means.

Life is about choosing paths. You’ll regret taking this path but you can’t undo it. Maybe, and just maybe, you’ll find another way to be on the unchosen which you regret too much. I wonder if you keep on walking on the path that you chose if you find it interesting. Would you still go all out for the other path? If you’ve been walking and hoping to find another way to be on the other path for two years and still no sign of good news would you still have the faith as the first time you wanted so badly to be on the other path? If your heart says “believe me, you’ll find a way” but the road says “what are you? Can’t you see you are making fun of yourself?” Which do you prefer?

There are many different types of person. If they do go-with-the-flow, I-go-where-my-pathway-lead, they’ll move on and come to an end – the path’s destination. Maybe and only maybe, someday, they’ll think “luckily, I chose not to fool myself and go on with this path. I’m destined for this path”, or maybe “If and only if I listen what my heart told me, I’ll be the one whom I wanted to be back then”, or maybe “I’ve enjoyed my whole life in this path. It’s fun, adventurous and happy-ending. What happen if I chose the other path?” or maybe something else.

If they are the one with hard-to-lose person a.k.a stubborn, and then finally find a way to be on the other path there will be two outcomes: “yeah, at last! It was a right decision to not lose hope” or maybe “I was wrong. This path isn’t and never was mine. Why don’t I stand on reality?” but still, it will come to an end. Like the other path, one day they’ll think “all of my hard work, my time, my sweat, my heartache and all the troubles I’d pass, wasn’t too much compared to what I achieved these days,.” Or maybe “if and only I could turn back the time, I’ll go for when I chose to take the this part and keep on walking without regretting losing a chance to be on this path.” Or maybe “If I keep on walking on the other what was it in the end? Will it give me more than what I’ve got now, or worst?

But . .

What if the first type chances their mind when they realised and found a way to the other path? What if when the second type found a way to the other path yet chose to stay?

What if they choose to stay where they stand by not moving on and stay there?

Tell me. A single question raises more questions. You may choose a good or bad question but the choice is yours to make – not mine or anyone.

I had lots of questions in my mind and yet chose not ignored it – and what am I?

I’m brave enough to stop thinking of it and I’m too weak to handle any other question. What am I?

Quoted Mrs. Julia Giduk one evening : when you wake up in the morning, you have two choice whether to get up from bed or pretend it is still early and sleep more.

So true. Every choice we make, give lots more choices. It was like reading a book which you decide what story you want next? Have you ever try that kind of book? I always end up choosing a dead-end.Anyway, now I’ve reach to an end and the questions rose in my mind are “why do I choose to write this stuff. I end up putting myself in bad mood” and “what I will I do now if I choose not to write any just now?”

Well, question is just a question until you find an answer. I choose not to find any and get up from my lazy bed and watch tv. Soon!

Hey you reader, why did you choose to read this content at the first place instead of doing or read something beneficial?

I leave you with that question. With or without answer, it’s your choice.
