For long I waited to get a response —

A hope in my heart I silently nursed,

A dream I earnestly and joyously cherished —

One day I would have my wishes fulfilled.


I put in all the effort in my might —

With fervour I pursued my goals astride:

Along the way I neglected many other sights,

Cause I was so focused on getting it right.


On the way disappointments did come

When I thought my goal was out of sight:

It was then that I looked up to God —

A prayer in my heart — to light my path!


Today I stand at the Crossroads of Life,

Wondering which road my life will ignite:

The path to my right seems so uphill,

The one to the left looks easy but so still!


The road in front may take me too far off,

The one behind I might mistakenly leave behind!

How do I discern which road I need to take —

To reach my destination — my dreams to partake?


What if in the sole quest for my goal

I’m so far gone that all other paths close:

Will I ultimately  be happy I tried and lost —

Or will I be unhappy to have lost it all!
