    Some roads we choose
    to travel
    some roads are chosen
    for us.

    Some roads like detours
    cause us to wander
    all roads take us to an end
    we choose.

    All roads we travel to the end
    we have chosen
    all roads like roundabouts
    offer us to wonder
    where we are going
    and turn back.

    Along every road
    there are bitter cries and
    sweet rejoicings
    along every road
    we create travel companions and
    log memories.

    Along every road
    like billboards
    we discover opportunities for
    occupations and distractions
    for our journey.

    At life's final exit
    we will want to know
    not where have we traveled
    but did we travel well?

    Thought provoking! I love the final line - "At lifes final exit, we will want to know not where we have traveled, but did we travel well?" Most deep!!

    this poem is great, makes you wounder if you have chosen the right path, and what might have been if you would have taken the other road.

    Love the poem. We are all searching for the right path to follow.

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
