'If you live till your a hundred, then I hope I live till I'm a hundred minus one day. That way, I'll never have to live without you.' Winnie the Pooh to Piglet.

When I come to a split in the path,
I try to take the lonelier half,
The one with trees ten metres tall,
That doesn’t lead to a shopping mall,
I take the road without maintenance staff,

When there’s a fork in the road,
I try to take the one less strode,
The one covered in dust and moss,
That looks the hardest to come across,
Indeed the one less showed.

I take the road less toured,
The one that’s the most obscured,
Well away from public eye,
With grassy plains and open sky,
So it’s lucky I’m insured.

I loved this poem :) It was very well written. You incorporated your rhymes nicely.
