Poem 297 - Dilemmas

Image link here

Always ends up on decisions we make
North or South? Left or Right?
We all know the maze of life isn't a piece of cake
And that's why we make most decisions in fright

    -x-x-x-    

Got to choose wisely, yet can't be too slow
Tension breaks, as you don't know what to choose
Sweat pours down on my eyebrow
As on the chessboard I make a move to lose

   -x-x-x-

So while choosing your paths be firm and clear
Those dilemmas of yours, decide your tomorrow
For you choose the right key, then to success you're near
And when you choose the wrong, it might be a life of sorrow

    I had not finished my comment. I was trying to figure out how to sign as guest. A person really needs to think carefully about the path one takes, as it can influence a person's future. Especially when a person is young as you are, it is very important.


    I hope you will be able to comment on other people's poems at Poetry Jam, especially those of people who generally 'make the rounds,' as they will be more apt to visit your blog. We all like visits. Smiles.

  6. Some decisions might be hard to take. We see what we might lose as well as what we might gain from our choices. Hopefully with most of them it is always possible to make another one rather than lead a 'life of sorrow'.

  9. our lives are a product of our choices...that can either empower us or scare us...and if we live life scared to make those moves we are at the mercy of everyone elses decisions.

  11. Don't settle for a life of sorrow! Open another door, Step out on a new path...it is important to choose wisely though. Just don't keep on the bad "ways" if you have made a wrong choice!
