At The Crossroads

I’m at the crossroads 

looking each way, 

looking carefully

then deciding

which road to take.

One way leads to paradise,

or so I’m told,

but how to know 

or when,

or where 

I will find it.

Will it be

along the way,


or at the end of the road,

or later still,

after I’ve moved on.

How to know.

Are there clues on the surface?

On the smooth tarmac,

or in the ruts and potholes, 

or yet deeper down.

And what of the other roads?

Who can say whether paradise

can be found there as well.

Perhaps it can be anywhere,

down any road,

if I can only see it.
