Choices - Poem by Steve Samuels

Don't just say you
Learned your lesson
Put it into practice.

You heard words
You saw some data
Now you want some action.

Justify the choice you made,
Don't question why you made it.
They switched the picture you preferred
And now you validate it.

I picked the sweet jam, you the sour,
Then they swapped the labels.
Why'd 'you like the one you went for?
Have they turned the tables?

Thought I liked it, made a list
Of pros and cons then chose it.
Now I'm left with worthless objects
I'm the one who knows it.

Hide your feelings under words
And try to give some reasons.
Feelings can't be verbalised
And words change with the seasons.

First this picture, then that picture
Tell them which is better.
Six months later, quiet reflection
Your heart writes a letter.

'Sorry, feelings, I was lying,
Ignored gut reaction, '
Should've known deliberation
Shits on satisfaction.
