It started long ago
When I walked an L
Down the long side of it ... going,
familiar with it's straight, narrow path...
Secure in finding no surprises
my blouse buttoned, hair
combed back, shoes pointed
towards the everlasting aim
of arriving at the same destiny
My head no longer able to imagine
or procure another way, an exit...
And it happened, it hit me
Or was it I the one who came upon
the sudden jolt of the unfamiliar...?
The secure road I had chosen
suddenly daring me
by its ending, where I counted
it would not!
But it mocked:
"You chose an L, not an "I"
And here I am to fulfill it"
Drats!, I protested, how'd I know
it'd be capital not a simple "l"
that'd be manageable, humble?!
Hah, said the L, who'd ever think
you have control of these minuses
or pluses in your life...?
Had all the information been there
You'd know, right? But you don't...
And that's where I, the "L" decide what
I am. Allow you to follow
a lower case life, or explore
what's around the corner...
So, I was left to ponder that I
still had a choice, not to abind
by god L, the fate given...
I could go back over the familiar
or strike sideways upon its turn
although it be not a
fork on the road,
as the poet I chose the
road less travelled...
And said to the god L
Here your pronnouncement
ends... My choice begins
Your sharp bend now craddles
and holds me from harm
Showing me the road much
shorter on the way to my
Capital "R"...!
