This year I came to the crossroads of career paths and after much thought decided to take the road less traveled.
By: Cynda Alexander and Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a career path,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where 8 to 5 met freelance;
Then took the attitude, of laissez-faire,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was time and I wanted freedom;
Thinking as for that the passing of time
Had worn me really down of the game,
And both that morning equally lay
In my career path trodden black.
So, I kept the first for another day!
Knowing how 8 to 5 leads on to 60 hours,
I doubted if I should ever go back.
I shall be telling this with a smile
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
