This poems reminds me that life is not a rehearsal. When I first read it, I was shocked to find how much I wished I had taken the other road, with hindsight, with age, but I would be going back to that road with the knowledge that the road I’ve chosen has given me. As it happens, in one way I did get back to it because now I am writing and performing my poems, which years ago I neglected when choosing the other road.
