Guilty of cowardice or being shy?

I ask this when I realize fate has past by. The line comes from a poem I wrote.

The road goes ever on
From the door and across the lawn

Pursing its path with young eager feet
Following on a longer way it will meet
As far as I can, growing old, tired, and weak

The road goes ever away
From the door where I no longer can stay

Guilty of cowardice or being shy
Too many times I let fate pass by
When journeys twist and tie

The road goes ever forward
From the door to crossings treasured

At places where journeys blend
A stranger becomes a friend
Having adventures both attend

The road goes ever past
Starting slow then racing fast
