What is the poem about branches of a tree, i.e. choices in life, withering when the narrator can't bring herself to pick one?

There's a poem by a female writer. It goes through the life of the narrator, moving from a time when she has many choices (branches of a tree) to a time when, because she didn't choose from among them, they withered and she had fewer or no choices. The gist was that you need to pick one of your many tantalizing choices and start developing that path.
