Throughout life
We will have
Many choices
Some of them easy
Some of them hard

To any one choice
There are as many
Right answers
As there are

But to reach
Where it is
We want to go,
To finally gain
Our hearts desire,
We must choose
With care.

This choice
Has only one
Right answer
To move us
The shortest distance

Choose poorly and
You may still reach
Your desired
But with each
Wrong answer
The choices multiply
And your chances of being wrong

For many people
This is where
They spend their lives,
Wandering from one
Wrong choice
To the next,
Forever searching
For the path
That was once
So clear

Some are lucky enough
To find their choices
Bring them back
Onto the path,
Perhaps thru dumb luck,
Perhaps thru design,
The route
Matters not

Watch your choices
As your path
Through life

The trick is not
To learn
The right answers
But to recognise
The wrong
