A road to be taken

1000 words I received today.
Unexpected they were,
and happy they made stay.

1000 words came to me to say
that life was never mistaken
when put you in my way.

Two roads converged in a rain forest
After long before the travel had started
Two roads they still remain
and soon they will diverge again

I shall be telling this with a sigh,
two roads converged in a rain forest,
and who would dare to state
that life is not in love with fate?
