Chosen Paths

Tis' better to have felt the grace of love

Than to accept the lonely days of grey

Or find the freedom that is undreamed of

By couples intertwined from day to day?

A hitchhiker on a lonely side road

Can find someone to help enjoy the ride

A sole trekker may trust a quieter code

But has a whole world in which to reside

A guarded heart can never be broken

Nor sense the warm beauty of life's embrace

Gilded passion grows from truth unspoken

The torch flame flickers whilst running its race

Both paths can lead through victory and defeat

Only one soul never walks down one street
