1) There are two particular poems that I love that have always spoken to my heart. One is Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken":

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
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 it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
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.

2) There are two roads we can take in life. One road is well worn from much travel. The other is without wear and overgrown for it is less traveled. Most will take the road that is well worn. However, there are those who choose to take the road less traveled, and with Frost they can say, "And that has made all the difference."

3) The other is a poem by John Oxenham:

To every man there openeth
A Way, and Ways, and a Way.
And the High Soul climbs the High Way
And the Low Soul gropes the Low;
And in between, on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.
But to every man there openeth
A High Way and a Low,
And every man decideth
The Way his Soul should go."

4) Before each of us there opens a way. We can choose to be a "High Soul" and take the "High Way," or choose to be the "Low Soul" ...
