Paths

Will we ever see the paths not taken?
Is there ever a view
into other universes,
places, or times:
the great forks in the road of one's life
or even the small random chances
of fate?

What of the might have beens:
the other major,
the other job,
the other person.
the threads of our lives we put aside
to weave the ones that we know now?

Is eternity a singular stream,
or multiple paths,
running to an ocean?

Can we ever meet our other selves?
Would we recognize them if we did?
Or would we find them far different than we are now,
with no more than a surface similarity?

Or is all black beyond
this one path we choose,
leaving darkened pathways behind
never to be crossed again?
