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.
