I stood at the crossroads,

and I didn't know

where to go.

Left or Right?

It all looked the same

to me.

Either way,

there would be

death and disappointment,

as well as

love and light.

Indecision gripped me

with an iron fist.

Oh, to be

in my position,

and to know

what a wrong

turn would bring!

Terror. Torture. The Unknown.

Nevertheless, I must plod on.
