This one was written after long hours of thought over Robert Frost's poem The Road Not Taken. You can read it here if you want: http://www.wsu.edu:8080/~wldciv/world_civ_reader/world_civ_reader_2/frost_road.html and I hope this becomes my flag to go on living from now on...


REALISE
(My answer to dad thanks to Frostís words)

Realise
That ever since I was born
There were too many roads
Roads I could see standing for very far away
Roads that could lead me anywhere
Hidden of anyone that could hurt me

Realise
That ever since I was born
There were so many roads
But I could not take any of them
But I could not decide for any of them
Because you were deciding for me

The roads I saw on that time
Were as grassy as Frost's roads
Roads worn by so many steps taken
Roads that wanted wear
Calling my feet to walk upon them

And God, how many times I felt sorry
For not traveling any of them
Because they could lead me to places
Far, so far from of you and your control

Realise
That there is poetry here inside of me
Senteces that I start
But that I don't know how to complete

Realise
The sound that comes from deep inside of me
I'm just trying so hard
To find my way out of your road

Realise
That you are the one who made me like this
I don't feel at home in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say what's on my mind
You should have already known

You should have known
That the time has finally arrived
For my dreams to be seen
Above all of the clouds you hanged over them
But you don't want to see them
All because you don't want to
Realise it....

Now I'm done believing in you
You never wanted to know what I was feeling
I'm more than what you made of me
I followed the road you wanted me to
But now I have to find
A road for my own...

Realise
That I am alone and I see two roads
One of them is the one you made me take
And the other one will be
The one Iíll certainly walk through now

You should have realised it
There is something here inside me
Someone I thought had died
A long long time ago
This one will take this road
And I believe itíll make all the difference

Now my dreams will come true
I won't let anyone say they won't
I won't take your words as true anymore
All because you won't
Realise it...

I don't know where I belong
Nowhere seems to fit me
But I'll move my way on
I won't be held back in your road
All because you won't
Realise it...

Julian,

Hey, bravo! That's a very good poem and I love the topic you chose. I think Frost would have liked it as well. If he were still with us I think he would have sat with us and told you that we all have to choose our own road.

By doing that we "become" ourselves. We allow ourselves to express who we are in the world we live in, and in that way we make a life for ourself that is uniquely "ours", as opposed to being satisfied with treading in the path of others.

Allow yourself to listen to others who have been in the forest longer than you have, sure, but you aren't the creature of your father - or anyone else for that matter. Find your road and make it yours.

Much love,
Larry

Thank you very much, guys. I managed to put sth from the inside out through this one. And I may say that thanks to you people that have been in the forest for much longer than me that I can finally find my own road now.

I will struggle to find it. I don't know where it is yet, all I can see is still this old road but I believe leaving this one will be for the best.

Thanks with all I have,
J.

Very cool bro. I know Frost would like the way you are taking up his challenge and using his images.

Much love,
Larry
