Lost in the Woods

Unknown Paths

Stay on the path, they said
it it golden, clear and bright.
Don’t stray to the grass, they said
it is simply not right.

Don’t go into the house, they said
danger lives within.
Don’t give in to temptation, they said
you know not what will begin.

I like the hard paths, said I
going the way I “should” not.
I don’t mind the witches, said I
the bears got what they ought.

Besides, stories are quite boring
without some additional exploring.
