Stories To Be

Bits and Pieces of my stories. Some posts here will be continuances of a story. Some will be details or ideas for a scene or other part of a story that isn't next but I don't want to forget. Each post will be titled with the name of the story it belongs to, to keep things from being confusing.

    Assignment: Two Roads 

    This poem was written for our Dec. 19th writing assignment for the writing group my friends and I "re-started". I assignment was:
    take the quote and run with it- make a poem, a short story- something that you're inspired to create from the quote:

    "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both..."
    Here's what I wrote.

    "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    and sorry I could not travel both..."

    One lead the way of light of the day
    The other the beauty of night

    Yet, alas, two such dichotomies
    can not at once be the same

    So we're forced to choose
    One or two
    Or option three
    There be stuck in one spot not deciding

    None give rise to knowing the others
    We can only stay or go

    Each course has its lessons as a way to know
    Each giving more choices still

    Each has dark and light
    Hide in one
    Or shine in the other
    But not be stuck in one spot deciding

    So whichever way you choose, God speed to you
    I'll not be found here, lollygagging

    I'm on my path, right or wrong,
    Trying to enjoy the way
