The Crossroad

 The future is inscrutable
The crossroad has been left far behind.
Submerged forever in a dark ravine.

Uphill it's been,since that very day,
Pebbles and thorns all the way.

I wonder about that other road,
Was it shady?Where did it go?

Barren land or lush terrain,
Welcoming arms or quick disdain?

Widespread meadows,beckoning flowers,
Serene satisfaction of happy hours.

 A symphony resonating all around,
Filling the air with joy unbound.

So easy to picture a perfect place,
Omitting all,that we truly hate.

But nature has some definite norms- 
Want the flowers?Deal with thorns.
