The route we take to Abiquiú
is really each one’s own option.
It’s known there’s few but one road new
that’s likely to win one’s adoption.
The interstate is fast and straight
and time is a favorite factor.
To navigate the roads we take
can bind and break a lifelong trait
of the constant easy path-taker.
Life is a journey to the end, a gurney;
it’s short and sweet, but sometimes late,
why live one’s life with chronic ill hate,
when there’s choices each one can readily make?
The route we take to Abiquiú,
of which there’s more than one option,
we know of a few, but take one new!
and the journey will brighten and broaden.
