The Path With the Brambles

Someone once asked me why I always insist on taking the hard road.

At the time, I didn't know how to answer

because it never occurred to me that the road I chose was the harder of the two.

I didn't even realize there were two.

Hundred.

Options.

Choices.

Now, years later, I don't know how to answer

because how do you explain

the attraction of the brambles?

The lure that, while the other paths are paved and flat and filled with filling stations, the path with the brambles holds...

Promise.

Wild, untamed, unmitigated.
