The Trial By Choice

“Love is life, and life is lived~in love.” Say ‘yes’ no certainties, zero guarantees.

Dear God, where am I going?
Dear God, where am I going?

The journey back to me~
a we
I have yet
to fully see
is fraught with feelings
~uninvited
a gentle muttering
~uninterrupted
a heart flutters
~unexpected.

A fork in the road,
a street otherwise straight~
twists, turns, transforms.

“Where am I going?

The crossroad of choice
creates chasms,
begs closure,
demands eyes that see,
ears all attuned.

Fearing heartbreak,
dreading crushing heartache~
will you say ‘yes’
to a love
that may not be?

‘No’ to songs never-ending,
chanting despair,
threatening torment?

“Who’s going with me?”

Choose ‘no’
perhaps peace aplenty~
the sleep of the eternal dead,
the coward forever damned.

Never lay claim to life
for you have never lived.

Love is life
and life is lived~
in love.

Say ‘yes’
no certainties,
zero guarantees.

Merely the glimmer of light,
please don’t fade too fast.

A readiness,
uncertain willingness,
relentlessly agree~
Yes!
to a future
too faraway to see.

To my foolish past~’thank you;
my pulsating present~’it is what it is’;
a still veiled future~
yes indeed,
bring it on!
