Offerings to Hekate
By Ellen Lorenzi-Prince
to the place where three roads meet
ghosts you’ll find, dying to eat
sweet soul as you pass this way
tears you weep and the words you pray.
go on you must choose now, left or right
road lies in darkness, the other in night.
choose you must, or give up where you stand
must keep moving to cross this land.
you choose one road the other one dies
the road untaken is full of lies
what never happened, of what will never be
unborn, ghosts never set free.
may haunt you still, though you chose another way
doubt and regret are where they play.
be wise, be strong, and choose with care.
to the crossroads - if you dare.
