ooc: I tried to explain to Max that he was supposed to use the poem titles as inspiration. He decided to use the authors as inspiration and have his pick of poems and use "The Road Not Taken" I apologize. Also, this response includes the entire series of Roswell, as opposed to the first half of season 1 as he's been sticking to.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

This is one of the reasons I believe you choose your destiny, you control your life. There are moments, everyone has had them, where you know whatever decision you make in that moment is going to change your life forever.

I’m not talking about eggs or toast for breakfast. I don’t even know that I’m talking about college or straight to work. I’m talking about decisions even bigger than that.

I could have walked away that day at the Crashdown. I could have turned my head. I could have let the ‘natural’ order of things take place. No one’s suspicions would have been aroused. Michael, Isabel and I would have gone on with life as usual.

Even before that there were forks in the road. Isabel and I could have stayed with Michael, despite the fact that he wouldn’t go with us. We could have stayed and been found a week later with him. I guess we all would have been put in the state home then foster homes. Isabel and I probably would have been separated.

Then there was Tess. She was a huge fork in the road with a disaster sign beside it. She was pregnant with my child. I let her go back to our world without me because she’d lied. It had all been orchestrated, from the very first moment I saw her until that very last second. Oh yeah…she was giving me up to be executed as soon as we arrived on our home planet. It was kind of a key condition for me but never the less it was a decision I made. I could have returned with her. I could have pleaded for my life, hoping they’d take pity on me and my son. I have to be honest, it was a decision I considered for a moment.

And Zane. That one kept me up all night staring at his perfect little fingers and toes, watching his chest rise and fall with each breath. I could have raised him. I know Liz wouldn’t have denied me a life with my son, regardless of who his mother was. We could have dragged him from city to city, one step ahead of the government. But that’s not a life for a child. He’s completely human and he needs a completely human life. One that doesn’t involve looking over his shoulder or knowing that one day he would have to leave everything he knew and loved behind. He doesn’t deserve that. He deserves parents like I had and a life that I saw glimpses of.

One decision I made that has changed my life forever never had an option. There was never a point I looked at the fork in the road because there was never a fork. That was marrying Liz…Maybe you can’t always choose your destiny. Maybe all roads, no matter how many forks you take lead to one destination.
