That Is Not Decided - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What can stop...
Is a choice to drop,
One's pain.

Trapped within devices...
None of which is liked.
Inside a box,
Inspite of invitations,
To enjoy the outside light!

A struggle ensues.
As if delighted.
And a shading to shadow,
Any brightness,
With an enclosure imposed.

What can stop...
Is a choice to drop,
One's pain!
That is not decided.
