"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

So we have all heard of that poem by Robert Frost...I won't waste time here but if you are curious as to how it goes click here. Anyway, I was thinking...most people do not take the "road less traveled." Reasons being why?
- It is lonely
- It is harder
- It is more comfortable where people have been before
But what if we took the road less traveled? What if I took the road less taken? I know what that would mean. Separation from most of my current friends. Most of them would no longer be seen. I would simply "fade" into the background and disappear. But would the benefits outweighed the rewards? I feel as if I am once again in some conflict of choices.
I always ask the Daysman, why is it that I have to give up so much in order to gain things later? Should I travel this road alone? Would I be more effective for his cause? I remember what he told my mother. Would I have to sacrifice that much? What is the price of one's faith?
The days are counting down until I enter into the world again. Back with family again. I know the standards that I have to live by, the steps I have to take. I can honestly say my focus will not be America in general. Nor will it be my current friends affairs. I am looking outward...towards the east. I am looking away from the west. I am looking into...the future. Selah...

I sometimes wonder myself, and yet the one who makes me wonder makes me see new things everyday. He showed me that there is not two roads, but one. That road is the road we walk, because there is only one life we lead. Decisions turn the path which way it will go - but the path never changes. I thank him for that...and so much more. And yet, I cannot be near him...
And so my heart is both sad and glad - as I am facing similar decisions...sigh, life if hard.
