Two Roads -The Choice in America


Before Us
Two roads
Diverged in
America.

And each
Person be
But one
Single
Traveler
Can’t
Travel
Both.

Before us…

Both
Roads
Equally
Lay.

So which road to choose?

One road is
Paved with
Words of
Hate
Fear
Bitterness and
A false
Sense of
National
Pride.

A second road is
Paved with
Words
Purchased by
The funneling of
Money to
And
Through a
System in
Which
There is
Much to
Do and
Many
Promises to
Keep

Many
Many
Promises to
Keep.

And I
Being
One of
Many
Travelers I
Have a choice to
Make.

Two roads
Lay before
Me
Equally
Paved.

Yet, it is
Not
A road I
Choose
But
A path.

I choose
The path
Created by
People
Unafraid to
Progress
Forward.
Confident in
Their ability to
Work together for
The common
Good.

This path
Could lead to
The presidency.

It could
Lead to
A freeway
Paved by
The hard
Work of
Many
Willing to
Give for
Each other to
Make
Life
Better for
Each other to
Strive
Together to
Make
This path
A real
Choice in
A world of
Fear-driven
Greed-driven
Illusionary
Decisions.

And now
I say
What’s
Next
This with
Only a
Bit of
A sigh.

If it doesn’t
Lead here
Nor there.

This path
This foot
Trodden
Road will
Continue on
Winding
Its way
Through many
Generations of
People
Who won’t
Give up on
Each other.

In America
This path
This road is
The road less
Traveled.

Yet
This road
Whether
Today or
Tomorrow will
Make all
The difference.
