“He who hesitates is lost,” so they say,
so I jump to make my decisions and declare
who I am before anyone else can play
the cards I was dealt for me, whether just or unfair.
If I think too much, I’ll lose what I want
but if I don’t think at all, I may choose wrong
and that’s not something to approach nonchalant,
but it’s something I knew all along.
But they also say that life is a journey
and no matter how much you try to advance,
your happiness can end up in a morgue, on a gurney;
just another victim of circumstance.
