A Choice


I made a choice once,
One that made me what I am,
I was a happy child,
Filled with neither worry nor fear,
And then I got older,
And fear arose,
It was compounded with hate,
Worry and sadness,
I understood the intricacies,
Of life and all of its flaws,
I started asking myself,
All of these solemn questions,
And then I made the choice,
And it was so important,
And that choice has brought me here,
Into a bleak known,
I know what's behind me,
And anticipate what's ahead,
I feel an outcast,
Of no superiority,
I'm an omega,
Fighting to stay out of the pack.
