NaPoWriMo : Day 2 (The Road Not Taken)

NaPoWriMo

Poetry Prompt: In the world of well-known poems, maybe there’s no gem quite so hoary as Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about your own road not taken.

Do you believe in the multiverse theory? It can boggle the mind to think about.

Next Steps

Every decision creates

A multitude of paths left behind

Untread

	Undisturbed

		Undiscovered

			Unknown 

Turn around to see

The way that made you be

The path quickly disappears

As the past grows up behind

Blocking reversal

The way ahead 

Can’t see beyond another fork



Left or Right?

I will be posting my poems here: linesbyleon.com/national-poetry-writing-month/ I hope you will drop by!

I am an author, composer, and an artist. I published my first book of poetry: Lines by Leon – Poems, Prose, and Pictures in January 2020 and a book of original classical guitar compositions. My latest book is a short story compilation of science fiction/post-apocalyptic tales called, The Knot at the End of the Rope and Other Short Stories.
