ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I'm a 19-year-old college sophomore. Major still pending. I will most likely settle into an English or Creative Writing mode. I love to write! I have been writing non-stop since age twelve. I love C.S. Lewis and Anne Rice. (strange combo I know!) They both breathe out their work and it seems so natural and effortless! I hope to find a career doing what I love, pumping my pen against my paper.... I'll have to wait and see!

Paths To Take, Decisions To Make
A C Christine

I'm here, standing at the fork in the road, wandering this way and that, testing the waters of this world I know so little of. On the right I have brambles on the sides, tangled trees above, but a smooth path below to trod, with soft lush moss covering spring's new soil. And the air is warm and comfortable there and it..it almost even smells and feels like home. Then to the left birds chirp in the brightly green oak trees and rabbits play in the clover along this path. Everything here is so appealing to the eye. The fragrant smell of roses linger in the air and the sun bounces off the stream that runs just to the left of this path. Yet just when I think I've seen it all and I am ready to take the left path I look to the path itself. The earth there is covered with rocks, brambles are just on the verge of reaching the roses that were so tempting to the eye. Malevolent eyes peak out from behind a boulder not to far from where a butterfly landed on a daisy. So, its all a facade, and the home-like smell of the mossy path appeals to me much more now.

 

READER'S REVIEWS (4)
DISCLAIMER: STORYMANIA DOES NOT PROVIDE AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWS. ALL REVIEWS ARE PROVIDED BY NON-ASSOCIATED VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF THE WAY THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

"Reminds me of "The Road Less Taken" by Robert Frost but lacking in empathy. I read it because I kind of felt sorry for A.C. who has gotten no reviews. As far as originality goes, you get an F for ripping off my second-favorite poet (Poe takes the gold). Imagery gets an A as well as personification. Kudos, and do pursue those aspirations of yours...I hope I won't be too lazy to. " -- Tyrant.
"Your essay was brief but vivid. Your descriptions and analogies are both strong and give the reader a great mental picture. I think that most of us felt the same way as you did when graduating high school." -- Matt Chizeck.
"Good imagery, but what do you mean exactly?" -- Abi.
"I haven't checked up on this in a while, but someone asked what I meant here. I was trying to explain how confused I felt right out of highschool...I'm from a college town and had two very good schools to chose from. I could either stay at home with my folks, save money and go to school or move 500 miles away from them with a friend and live on peanuts. Looking back now I wished I would have moved...I like peanuts! Oh well, I'm two and a half years into college and future looms and it's scary and I think about what it would have been like to move away from this ghost town and take that path with the little monsters hiding in the brambles. Yet, I'm still young and that path isn't to far behind me. Aww..the aspirations of youth! :)...Carpe diem." -- AC. Christine.
