What’s Ahead

There was a choice in the road up ahead,

should I go right, or should I go left?

Night had come on, and it was hard to see,

what with the rain, the way oncoming cars

light up every raindrop, magnifying the blinding rush

of brightness, making it even harder to see.

Will you follow me, was that a question or a command?

It doesn’t pay to dream in the middle of a storm,

losing track of the way, while you’re thinking about

what might be waiting tomorrow and tomorrow,

for the rest of your life, miss an exit, unthinking,

there’s no knowing how long you’ll be stuck

traveling farther from your way, this storm dream night,

you went left, and I went right.
