Choices (1)

Choices are my life's bane.
Like sombre Hamlet I ponder,
"Whether 'tis nobler...",
and still I must choose.

Immediate consequences
I can rationalize and live with.
Shall I eat now?
No? Then stay hungry.

We fear the unknown.
The unforseen results,
the unexpected tweaks of fate,
these "must give us pause."

And still we MUST choose!
From the simple and mundane,
to choices that will affect, forever,
our life and the lives of others.

Therefore, when the chance
presents itself, and time allows,
let us deliberate and wisely
make our considered choice.
