What If There Is More Than One Fork?
You and I often sit before forks in the road,
going left or right. What if these were not
the only choices and there were instead
many forks from which to choose,
perhaps even parallel paths being
lived by choices made? Imagine
if before you, stood the array of
parallel paths fanned out; each
consequence as well appearing
in the as-if-moment. Where would
your courage and knowledge lead?
Each choice fraught with uncertainty’s
peril; you sitting without sufficient
data, how is it possible to choose?
Perhaps, a life really is a crap shoot
Pass Line bet, hoping and praying
seven come eleven. Then again,
maybe the point is to trust-
trust in choices made.
As an Ecstatic Poet, my aim is to awaken in you, the part of you that knows the truth of your being, the beauty of your soul.
