Walking on Globes

His fingers walked across the globe
Through Delhi, Tokyo, Vancouver:
The road not taken in the sky,
When two diverging careers
Had made him choose his family.

He was the age I will be soon.
And on my road, I see a sign:
Two arrows splitting up ahead.
The stakes are same. The choices same.
Decision likely to be same.

Will I in forty calendars
Be walking on augmented globes?
