Less Trodden Path

Walking down the street
when I look around I find it empty
I wonder why?
Perhaps because I chose the less trodden path.
It's scary and would really help if
I could hold your hand and
walk side by side, step by step.
But if I did that
I wouldn't have chosen the less trodden path.
You walk the empty street and
I walk the empty street
At times it really helps
to know that you are not alone
but if you knew that
again you would not have chosen the less trodden path.
They don't get me,
don't understand me
I stand alone
It's difficult and scary
but I know I am no coward
I know it's the days when I can't find any answers
are the days when I need them the most
Some have it easy,
some have it hard.
for me I chose the less trodden path
When I look around
I see how lonely I am
For I am different but
I know I am blessed
for people spend their lifetime
to stand apart and I am already miles apart
for I chose the less trodden path.

A good start with a nice poem, Darshpreet. You may like to read my poem, Love And Lust. Thank you.
How bold are you to choose the less trodden path? The flow of words runs smoothly through out the poem.
