When you hear the word ‘fork’, you probably generally think of the kitchen utensil that is used to eat various foods. When you think about the word ‘fork’ metaphorically, however, you may think of a fork in the road, a road that not only has one path to go down, put two or more options. I think, like forks in the road, we are often burdened with choosing what road to go down in many things in life. Not only are there literal forks in the road, but there are also figurative ones that live in our mind.
‘Forks in the Road’ can be taken metaphorically and be used to describe someone’s life. When in a sticky situation, there are often various choices and options you can take. If you’re mad at someone, you may contemplative being rude back, or taking the better route and being nice. When deciding what to do in a scary or intimidating situation, such as choosing what college or career to go to, you may want to take one of two routes- the easy one that has practically no risks and will most likely have a positive outcome, or the scarier option that is a new experience and seems very frightening and intimidating. As humans, we are often faced with difficult challenges that have multiple options and outcomes. We try to choose the good route, but we often struggle and sometimes choose the opposite. Like ‘forks in the road’, we have more than one choice in many things in life and often have to choose what road to go down.
