Left Or Right

Two different options
On two different hands.
They are each
Right yet wrong.
On the one hand:
Continuity. Carry on.
Humour an ever merciful God
That may or may not exist.
See where this path of dirt,
Dried blood and crumpled papers leads.

On the other:
Refrain. Walk away.
Put the knife hidden
In the underwear drawer
To good use.
Let it find a new home
In your chest.

Each choice right
For some.
Wrong for others.
Write a list of
Pros and cons
And see which hand triumphs.

Write slowly.
Breathe deeply.
Think hard.

The words that spell
May also spell "end".
…Tread carefully.
