Discovering takes time
choices are always with you

Yet, the road is incomplete
and one must choose again.

One path can lead to the end,
but one can lead to another and another

The question is of regret,
but even then, one does not know

If chosen another, what is altered
or much of muchness?

A fork in the road--
a compass or a coin,

door after door,
do you ever wonder?

Justifications and motivation
emotions, or shrewd thinking,

whether it is through steps
or by spontaneous actions,

there is one door.
Take nothing but leave a legacy.
