The Path

There are many paths in life,
but of all these paths
There is one that you must travel .
That path and that one alone is for you .
And whether you want to or not,
you must travel that path .
So the choice is not the path, because it chose you .
The choice is how you travel that path .
With unwillingness for the pitfalls and the stones,
With resistance because the sun is barely able to reach
a path that cuts through the ravines .
Or with the will to be gentler and
wiser at the end of that path
than you were at the beginning .
The path chose you : will you chose it too ?

Hans Stolp
