A Choice of Footpaths

A race to the finish. Two seperate foot paths, One plush With soft grass And lined gently with fir trees. One rocky Hard and stoney and bare If there was a tree It may hamper the journey. No one returns from the race But thepath can be changed In the middle. So why worry About which road to take now? The foot path of ease Would end the race sooner. But what if the paths change Further up the road. What if the plush one Leads to a rocky ending?
