Long ago, I’d come to dread
The choices looming up ahead.
Now the intersection’s clear,
The day of reckoning is here.
Soon there’ll be no turning back,
Once I choose the narrow track.
Steep and winding it will be
But it’s the only one for me.
When I pass around the bend,
I’ll not see you again, my friend.
Let no one your decision make –
For only you the path can take.
