Somehow really reminds me of The Road Not Taken by Frost, haha!
I guess we can look around and smell some flowers nearby when we are lost, both in life and while actually travelling through unfamiliar roads. ^-^
Enjoyed reading it!
I can see that, actually, as it can be taken in a humorous way and in a sadder way. If you take it in the latter way, then it definitely has the same thoughts on paths that you didn't go down!
Yes, enjoy what's there, I agree.
My previous Satnav was so boring, so I decided to overlay the voice with Stephen Fry's. Well worth my pocket money! Now, whether I was lost of not, I had one of my icons with me - he even said, "I think I love you?" At the end of each journey. Lol
I enjoyed this poem because it can be taken to mean a lot of different things. As most people have pointed out the face value of the poem itself is getting lost in a car on the way to a certain place. Here in the USA gps' often confuse themselves to where they get lost as well even if you know you are on the right track.
But I also took it as an emotional piece (perhaps that is the state of mind i am in now). It feels like this person is at a cross roads deciding which way they want to go in this life. They feel like they have taken a wrong turn and feel lost.
It's difficult to turn around once you have mafe that decision. A map would help yes but oft times you have to follow your gut feeling.
I think the semi colon works well here punctuation wise, because you are connecting the two sentences but (and this might just be me) i don't love the comma because in my mind it flows and reads better without it.
