Which Way Should I Go?

Which Way Should I Go?

3 mins
184


Standing on the crossroad, I’m confused which way to go

If the only correct answer I could know

And the worst part I can’t even cheat here

Everyone has a different question paper to clear


What if I make the wrong decision?

What if it causes derision?

And worst of all what if there is no right choice as yet?

Every option just leads to regrets!


This is my life for God’s sake!

It won’t have a retake…

All those memories came back rushing

Their impact was indeed crushing


I was mediocre in school

Most of the people thought I was a fool

I didn’t care back then, or maybe I did…

Alright, I agree I was a lame kid.


But I always had this hope that the times would change

I kept on dreaming and dreaming, it was kind of strange

And it wasn’t the case, I didn’t act upon it

Even after numerous disasters, I didn’t quit.


Failures are stepping stones to success they say

And even I said back then, what the hey!

I had a smile on my face, even when I wanted to cry

The thought of what future might hold was always worth another try


But the question here is how many times do I give it another shot?

In this infinite loop of defeat, I have been caught

And I haven’t been born with a silver spoon in my mouth

Most of the times things just go south


When I was a child, I could just move on by saying what the heck!

But it’s high time now that I get a reality check!

I am an adult and there are responsibilities I can’t back out from

Relinquishing your delicate dreams in front of harsh reality is that a norm?


I don’t want to give up now after coming so far

It can be my time now; I could be the next star

‘Could’ and ‘next’ aren’t that convincing though

The counter itself can shut down when I am next in the row.


There are so many inspiring stories about people who didn’t give up

It would be cheating on my dreams if I make them my back up.

On the one hand, there is practicality whereas, on others, there are my aspirations

People from me have certain expectations and I also have towards my goals certain obligations


Either I can take the risk or let my dreams go

It's time for the final show

It’s done or dies now

It is Sophie’s choice! Holy cow!


It’s been an eternity and I haven’t chosen which road I should take

Everything I worked for until now is at stake.

This situation is so messed up, I am just confused…

Where should I go? Which way should I choose?
