So many paths to follow,
so many possibilities and
how to choose she asked,
why should I choose, she
asked, I can accept them all
for no one can say
which one is true
which one is real
because they are all real
and true, because they all
lead to the same end, she said,
as she convinced herself
to try everything,
to do nothing.

“The Way It Is
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
~ William Stafford ~”
