the road not taken

beat your own path

uncommon people are thought of

as mad or genius —

and such history and success adore —

over the common;

success makes their bustles enviable,

and history turns their babblings into wisdom —

in the fullness of time.

the common road is full and stale,

and common comes of it —

common thoughts, common deeds, common men,

full and stale, deserving Shakespeare’s —

it is a tale, told by an idiot,
full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

one walked the road not taken — and said,


the strong, the brave, the great

were so

’cause they all beat their path —

their own,

which none else could beat or travel

— Samuel Onyango
