two roads diverged in a wood…

the universe gives us signs and they are everywhere… if we are open to receiving these signs… when i was deciding to fully pursue my dream of singing… i wrote a poem during this time of uncertainty that was inspired by Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken”… later on (the same day that i wrote the poem) i was reading a book by Paulo Coelho called “The Witch of Portobello” and the book referred to the main character pondering these same words of Frost… it was a sign for me to boldly take the risk and walk the road less traveled… some might call it a small coincidence (but i heard somewhere that coincidence’s are God’s way of remaining anonymous)… so not only do i encourage you to take the road less traveled but also to follow the signs that will lead you to a magnificent and beautiful adventure that is the fulfillment of your dreams… 

i couldn’t find the poem i wrote but here are the words of poet Robert Frost:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

    Love this sweetie. My mom raised me on Frost, I’ve always loved that poem.

    In fact it’s on Duchess somewhere too.

    Miss you! Can’t wait to see you again!
