The Road Not (Usually) Taken

I have walked when a cab would have been more comfortable.

I have worked when sleeping would have felt better.

I have cooked when take-out would have been simpler.

I have chosen the harder answers when all I wanted were some easy ones.

I have arrived earlier and stayed later when I might have chosen to watch the clock.

And then, one day, I took a car, and made a food-ordering call, and slept as many extra minutes as I could. Because sometimes, we're allowed to put aside the days when we had not enough money or not enough time, not enough freedom, not enough voice, not enough luck.

Sometimes it's okay to take the road not usually taken...
