No Choice


Sometimes I’ll observe an incident in life that I have absolutely no jurisdiction over. In frustration I’ll just sit back and peck out a poem. As is true with life in general, people may start traveling one path, when conflict forces them off their intended road. Or they become enlightened and break off into a new direction. Either way I silently watch in angst as they avoid the inevitable choice, to stave off the lurking pain. Despite the fact this poem is written about one particular situation it applies generically to a few unrelated circumstances at this juncture!

No Choice

Broken down vehicle

Cracked at the core

Broken down sentiments

Severed the allure

Broken down conduct

Aiming for the crash

Broken down interior

Extracting the trash

Broken down conclusions

Lesions from the wreck

Broken down appetite

Left with just a speck

Broken down assurances

History less congealed

Broken down fortitude

Prospects now repealed


If I broke my silence this is what I'd say!

You have but one choice

Rejoice, and find your voice

Choices indeed!! sometimes outside influence doesn't give us a choice of circumstances, just a choice of how to react to them..
