    Speaking of journeys
    There's this road ahead
    That I've come to a fork in
    And now I dread
    The decision......
    Or should I say, the indecision
    of the separation,
    the division
    in this road
    cause one road is paved with gold
    and the other, a possible dead end
    a path only for the bold
    I said I wouldn't ever return
    but yet here, I stand
    So since you hold the key
    that opens the promised land
    I ask you,
    Will I end up on that road again?
    You know the path I speak of
    The path that makes women afraid of men,
    for fear of having their tails kicked to the curb...
    So tell me...
    Will I
    End up
    On that
    Road Again?
    That road
    That street
    Where lover's hearts
    dare to meet
    The one that left me...
    in defeat
    I said I wouldn't
    I thought I couldn't
    And the good Lord knows,
    I shouldn't
    But here I am...
    I mean, a head's up would be nice
    Just a hint, perhaps, some advice
    You know, since you have to think
    about it more than...thrice
    Tell me....
    Will
    I
    End
    Up
    On
    That
    Road
    Again?
    Tell me baby....
    Will I?

    life is a twisted tale a path which we may not know of
    yet we venture to learn without doubt we should alway
    move in the direction which thy heart lead in to find such answer
    well said !

    Yes, Rich, we should move in that direction true. And those that hold the key should make that journey easier, not more difficult, wouldn't you agree? Thank you for the support on this .

    One road paved with gold. The other has become a dead end. No easy answer, no easy choice. You have to live with what ever decision you make. Taking the good you gained from the dead end prospect, and all you stand to gain ( peace of mind, love, a fresh start ) from the gold path and live a life that makes you happy. There are no guarantees.

    The gold paved road may be short in riches. The dead end road the road we are more familiar with. Shows less promise because we see greener grass on the other side.

    Do I stay or do I go? This is a undesired road to find yourself. As long as there isn’t anyone or something behind you forcing your hand in the matter. Or edging you to proceed at this time. It is OK to stand at the fork as long as possible. Thinking things through.

    Because once you decide. You can never get back to square one. You can’t always recover from a decision. Whatever decision you have to make.

    Make the best from what ever you decide.

    The heart :heart: is involved and this makes it very hard. What makes a decision hard is if you stay things wouldn’t be 100% , if you go it may not be 100% or the best answer either. Being equal. Choose change. I wish you the best.

    The worst part of any decision is not having another choice. Not having a place to go. You hold the key!

    Never be afraid of being hurt by love. That way you can see love when it's at its best.

    Love has no luggage, has a pass key, and runs in and out of your life.

    When you are in a relation-SHIP. The person aboard the vessel shouldn't punch holes in the boat. It takes you both down. If you allow someone aboard your ship. If they punch a hole in the boat, make them walk the plank.

    First you must know which vessel your on. Your's or theirs. Once determined. Make sure your aboard yours. Sail on. :crying:
