428 – Twist

It was never
A straight line
Or a clear-cut path,
He already knew that.

But he still
Had hope at least
For a set destination.
It was not like that.

The road split
In unexpected ways
Branching out

He knew
Where he had started,
And where he expected
The get.

But somewhere
Along the journey
He completely lost the way
And stopped trying to find it.

He suddenly realized
The detour
Had been the real path
All the time.
