Lost, wandering a barren, dirt road.
This path started lush and green, but it's been days since I've seen plant life or a pond.
Suddenly, before me, a new path appears, beautiful as any garden I've been in before, if not more so.
This path is lined with roses and I soon find myself within the shade of tall trees, towering over my head, shading me from the garish sun, allowing me to see thousands of blue flowers, each more glorious than the last.
Beautiful ivy reaches out to touch me as a gentle breeze caresses my skin.
Dare I leave my path for the promise of lush greenery?
Or will my selfish desires be punished by fate?
