A Fork in the Road
When I reach a fork in the road,
And pick a way,
I don’t look back, no way.
I move right ahead,
And to the future.
“What” and “If”s are altogether too pricy,
Painful, and incompatible with reality.
What is done is done.
All we can do is move on.
Use the past as a testimony,
Filled up with many a memory,
The present as an arena,
Your terra viva,
And the future as a blank slate,
On which you can write your own fate,
Whatever you feel like doing,
Building, sharing, living,
Do it, build it, share it, live it!
Life is past, present and future.
All you need is to make sure
Those seats are made fast and secure
Reality is no fantasy
“What” and “if”s simply
Can’t attend the party.
They belong to a future you would prepare,
So keep them there.
And at last they will take you somewhere.
