It has been a long walk

It has been a long walk
The road has taken me through many hills and valleys
The journey has been fascinating
Never thought about where the journey might take me
It has been a long walk
Time to choose where the journey might lead me
It has been a long walk
Up ahead I see a crossroad
I see two roads, with signs for two different destinies
One seems familiar, it’s crowded
I see familiar faces
I see my parents, I see my friends
It has been a long walk
I see so many vehicles
I ask them where they take us
To destiny, comes the answer
The final resting place, says another
It has been a long walk
I see so many vehicles
Why so many? I ask them
You choose the best for you, comes the answer from one
This looks familiar
This I am comfortable with
Still, Why so many? I ask another
This is the only vehicle, comes the answer
The others are false fantasy
Choose ours; the destiny is assured. Comes the answer
It has been a long walk
I have my doubts; I tell them
You want material proof, comes the question
People have spent their life on these vehicles, without questioning
You want material proof, comes the question, again
I have my doubts; I tell them
It has been a long walk
Temptation grows to take the other
The road looks less traveled
I see no vehicles
Where are you going; I ask one
To where ever the road takes me, comes the answer
Aren’t you alone; aren’t you scared, I ask him
I am alone but what’s there to be scared off? Comes a question
Are you trying to reach destiny without a vehicle? I ask him
The destiny is different for you and I; comes the answer?
Don’t you need a companion?
Don’t you need someone to help you when you are down?
Never seen one, comes the answer
It seem people take this road, because the other didn’t work for them, I tell him
May be this is not the right path for them, comes the answer
I am scared to walk alone, I tell him
The man walks off without an answer.
It has been a long walk
Time to choose a path
It has been a long walk
