[An Act In Decision]

I can not believe it result to this.
I feel dire, I relent to your submission.
I played this scene, Many times before
In colour view, To every precise detail
and yet….

Some how this crack in time, has split to elude a demanding face.
A cowards choice, A concluded demise.
I hate to see you suffer, But my eyes need to show my mind of what happens when you make a fatal mistake.

A silence screams in pain, I am limited to act a false sense of Tyranny, To live beyond my flaws. And to accept this is not the last, I will fail again. If I do not learn now. Then my fate is signed with a trickle of blood. A binding contract, I sell my soul…..
(If it’s not already gone…)

I was thinking of how, to change this thought. The others I gathered, The ending was of a more unfortunate state.
Please remember, I did not want this happen.
I was trying to save you.
Trying to help.
And yet…
I failed.

All these images, all these ideas I had. Come flooding back.
I feel dizzy, I feel weak…
This situation rewinds.
As I stare at it’s twisting swirl around me.
The picture stops.
I am back from my visit of
My Act in Decision.
To choose again,
A choice of choices….
Which one will I choose?

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
