Roads Again

Music and Lyric by David W. Jacobsen

Avenues unexplored
Streets never met
Some things remind
To not look behind

Hungers that were ignored
Chances that passed
Each choice you made's
A course betrayed

Options one speculates
Wonder which road
Was ideal
Regrets concealed

Questions that linger on
Though a life
An untrod street
What fortunes you'd meet

Don't dare
To ask again
It brings just pain

Don't stare
Down empty roads
To what you did not attain

Plans faded in the night
Simply forgot
Abandoned there
How would they fare

Connections never entwined
Broken before
Convergence failed
A new route prevailed

You make
Your choices here
And face them through

You take
Your chances down
The roads you pursue
