Passage

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveller, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then, took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim

Because it was grassy and wanted wear,

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodeen black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,

I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.

– Robert Frost

Human Nature

Is it human nature

to desire forbidden fruit,

to hunger for a blossom

so obsessed with passion

that we forget the pain,

which inevitably arises

once we tease ourselves

with the thought of it

or taste a tiny part of it,

and it becomes the predator

eating at us like a carnivore

that saves the head for last

savouring the brain to feed its own

and we, still craving illicit nectar

enjoying the fact that it is devouring us?
