What is, what was, what could have been: It all exists within the crux of alternate realities!

You're the road not taken

a place I've never been.

An opportunity that passed me by

that'll never come again.

 

You were likely a big mistake

a path of pain and despair,

but did perchance I tread down you

in an alternate world so fair?

 

A sidestep through reality

created at the crossroads of life

where points of decision twist and turn

giving every choice a chance.

 

So somewhere beyond yesterday

I chose the other lane

and there the road not taken

became my destiny.

 

Did we dance, did we sing

did we cry in misery?

We could have done it all,

you see, in an alternate reality.

 

A tale of tomorrow's never

can always bring a smile

for it's nothing but a fantasy

full of promise and denial.

 

And I always wonder,

if somewhere over there,

upon the road not taken
if we're pondering what it's like here.

Martin, once you've chosen a road in life, you should never look back and wonder what would have happened if you had took the other road? Life cannot be fun if we question every road we chose in life...step forth and make the best out of the road you chose. A nice write.

We alway wonder what could have been. You tell it so well, beautifully writen.

Alternate Reality - a fascinating concept, and I love your last stanza.
