Did you ever feel as if
you lost your way,
that somehow there was 
an exit missed,
a path not taken,
a road not traveled?

It is not the road you are on
is bad;
it is just that it feels 
slightly wrong,
a territory that should be
more familiar than it is.

Most, I suspect, make a peace
with the situation, 
an admission that this 
is not be the best of all possible worlds
but rather the best of the available words.

But even in my acceptance
I keep looking for exits
that I have long ago passed
never to return,
or see the tops of hills through which
I sense the road not traveled runs
