The path more traveled by

Clean cut grass with the boughs of trees trimmed
The sun shines upon me throughout my stroll
my senses are overwhelmed by the beauty
This is the path ive always taken
for this is the one i know best
I walk barefooted
there are no thorns to step on
and the ground is smooth
i walk with others cause it's boring to stand alone, after all
it is easy to walk together
to walk with the crowd
and who doesnt enjoy easy
I see fire and a path that leads away from it
but i dont know this path
so i walk on
I can start to feel the heat on my face singing my hair
the coals burn my feet
and smoke starts to occupy my lungs
I look around and noone seems phased
The group I'm in seems to be invincible
therefore so am I
I'll be fine there is nothing to fear except
the path I dont know...
right?
