I could laugh and cry
at the same time
live or die
embrace this soul that remains mine

I could fly or fall
love or hate
leave my food untouched
or pray for a full plate

Butter or cheese
Coffee or Tea
War or peace
Confusion or clarity

Look back or to the future
it’s dark just the same
or bright lights beckon
me off to this deadly game

This or that
Hold on or let go
What do I choose
I will never know?
