outdated metaphor

I’ve strayed from paths marked
And those prepared with care
I was proud heading off on my self-made way
Until I noticed the devastation I left behind
Roots torn up, moss overturned, vines ripped from soil so fresh and tender

Ecosystems still in foetal stages
will need many seasons to recover from my carefree strides
The path less travelled is but an outdated metaphor when so little is left undisturbed

It takes more courage to leave it alone
and more strength
to swerve and dance
within the confines
of the paved road
