Kierkegaard's folly

As the old Vermonter says,
you can't get there from here.
That road you thought you were traveling,
that goal you thought was so clear?
It's all a dead end --
or so all the signs tell you.

I have to say,
from here it looks like an impossible leap,
an unbridgeable chasm;
are you sure you want to risk
taking that last step into the unknown?
it's inevitable...

of course,
you turn around NOW,
seek out a different path,
sniff around a bit
and find the road that does go through.

Because the mountain will still be there waiting,
and there might be a better way;
another way to get there
from here.
