Decisions - Poem by Kennedy Huston

I am thinking
about the future
the past
the present
life sits frozen
starring me in the face
waiting for me to make a decision
but no one can give me advice or help
they are stuck too
while I debate the reasons for living
the reasons for dying
like a TV show that only airs an episode a night
you never get to know what happens
your anxious
anticipating what is going to happen next
but you never get to know
all you get to see is that one episode
so I understand finally
what it would mean
if I were without my friends and family
and if they were without me
it would mean nothing
so I move slowly going against life
killing it as I put a gun to my head
