Poem 19 “Stopping by the Woods Response”

“Stopping by the Woods” response by Mandy Austin Cook


the road less travelled

the higher ground
the quality way
against what abounds
the less popular choice
but the one that’s right
that’s what it comes down to.
looking beyond me
for my sight.
it’s not exactly my own inner compass
but it is standing up
understanding what I need
and realizing because it’s what I need
it’s also
what I most want.
