The Road


Two roads beckoned.

Ignoring the warnings, he chose the road that appeared like a short-cut.

Path


He embarked thinking it’ll be easy & less time-taking to travel.

He was captive.

Man In Chains

He regretted his wrong decision.

"Mom, What a story!"

"Always chose the right road in life, though difficult... Choosing the wrong will prove to be terrible..."



My 55-Word Story for #55WordChallenge :Week Sixteen

I also link it to ABC-Wednesday- W for Warning & Wrong & Wise.

Note- I dedicate this story to my Mother, who often advised me the lesson that's conveyed in the last line of the story & is in bold. Thanks Mom for all your wise lessons & stories.

  5. That's beautiful and I always believe taking the road full of stumbling block and thorns leads to ultimate success in life. It reminds me of SRK in DDLJ and how true:)

    1. Thanks Vishal. True.
      Yes, incidentally the DDLJ movie has the same dialogue as my Mom's lesson.
      SRK's character, Raj conveys the same advice that his mom had given- sahi raasta (right road) & galat raasta (wrong road) :)

  8. There are always two choices in life: The right and the easy.. The right offers more obstacles yet is the most rewarding journey in the end.. :)
