My heart’s desire

Then and now

Side by side

Me against them

Us against you

Time against turbulence

Safety against fire

Faith against freedom

Why not both?

Why not everything?

Why couldn’t I have all

And nothing?

My entire life I’ve had to choose

Between an imaginary present

And a semi-sweet past

All I’ve ever asked is to be happy

And I am

But not without blood

Not without a commitment

To a little bit of pain

For a little bit of pleasure

So even in my victories

I must choose between ecstasy

And exile

One thought on “Choices

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
