On one hand, there is this option.
On the other hand, there is that option.

Does this fork in the road lead to satisfaction?
Does that fork in the road lead to disaster?

Can this be the one decision that will harm me?
Can that be the one decision that will elevate me?

How to ensure that I am choosing wisely.
How to ensure that I am choosing correctly.

When faced with this choice or that;
Do I analyze or agonize?

I have no answers from my mind, my soul or psyche;
Yesterday I flipped a coin, today I run in circles.

Tomorrow is just another day and maybe by then;
I might just make it a good choice; at least that is what I pray.

I did analyze your work here. Nice introspection filled with simple questions that always values. Thank you for showing, amahlala !bouquet
With two lists, one for the other against, we can still hanker for the one we want. Maybe our heart is leaning that way. ...sometimes unwise...but decisions have to be made and we often make bad choices...but if we learn from them....maturity...we achieve something, but no one is called being human...good thought provoking...
