Roads leading to different destinations all around me…

I’m smack in the middle of this jigsaw of crossroads and have no clue which way to go…

Chaos surrounds me as people are running about their own paths, some coming back and taking another one. So much noise, so much hustle and all I can do is stand still and watch.

I’m confused, I’m torn and I’m in despair…

Some walk up to me and give me advice on which path to take, but it’s all a big mess. So many people each pointing me towards a different path, each giving their own justification for doing so.

I turned to people for advice, but their advice were just stories I could listen to and enjoy since the path I had to take was already decided for me, my journey was already mapped down even before I began it.

I had so many options to choose from, yet no choice. So many people’s opinion, yet no one listened to mine.

I stood there for as long as I could, wistfully looking down each path, wishing I could explore those…

But I had waited too long, and it was too late now. It was time for me to start my journey and hence I dragged me feet and set towards the rugged path, the most common one.

Maybe I could change my path further down the road, maybe I’ll end up having fun, maybe not, maybe it’ll be the best decision or the biggest mistake ever.

All this I would know only as I traveled. But for now, I had taken the road most traveled, and that is why I didn’t make a difference.
