Five-Hundred Word Challenge 725: Pathways and Branches

Many pathways and many branches, yet only one can be chosen and thus it must be chosen with the act of deciding. That is to say that a decision must be made in order to choose the path. However, in some cases this may not actually be the case. There are times when a path is decided not by deciding, but instead stumbling and accidentally going onto a certain path. Sometimes there is no stumbling and it just happens. There are so many out there with so many different ways of getting onto them that perhaps there are ones that you go onto under the assumption that the path you’re taking is one through the power of deciding. In that particular case, you may have been deceived, though perhaps there was no deception at all. Perhaps there just was no way to know whatsoever.

As such, perhaps there are times when going down a pathway, or climbing a branch, caution must be taken. You can’t always rush into everything, though rushing has its own merits. To deny that would be to deny many a thing and when you deny many a thing there is the risk of denying everything and if you deny everything… well, who knows what could happen? I certainly don’t. I’m sure there are many out there who also do not know. Maybe there is one person out there who does know. Maybe there are no people out there who know. Maybe there is no knowing and just a learning of things that are repeated by some sort of automatic system within ourselves, or something.

Now, where was I going with this? I’m not sure, to be honest. I think I was trying to express something grand and amazing, but I’m not really sure. Perhaps I will find out somewhere in the exploration of other things and concepts, but then again I might just not as I don’t think I will get any deeper than I already have. I’d rather be doing all the empty posturing and close with something vaguely profound in order to make sure that people believe that I truly am the greatest at everything; either that or some sort of wise old soul where my every word must be absorbed to the maximum extent so as to be able to be completely understood as full of meaning and deep with introspection, though really it’s all meaningless waffle, but of course I cannot say that as that would reveal the illusion I’ve shoved in everyone’s faces. I don’t want to reveal that illusion. I’d rather revel in the deceit and misleading so as to be able to get rich quick and thus rest on a pile of money for the rest of my days. Truly that would be the ideal path of which I would like to walk down.

Actually, I wouldn’t. That would not be satisfying. Rather not mislead and deceive where I can. Would rather just unite and keep on pushing forward.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 07:28:84

Whilst writing this the idea sort of tapered out and then left the proverbial room, hence the switching around to something less thoughtful.

Written at home.
