Choices, choices, choices

So much
opportunities abound
if they live up top
they can always be found
and I can shift my shape
to them
and bring you in
and around again
and make them real
and make them grow
I can do anything,
you know.

Life is such a wonderous dance
sometimes you lose
to circumstance and sometimes you
win
and when you do
you usually lose
but that’s hidden
from view.

I see the answers
I see the way
but to make it so
means I have to play
and to play means
I have to engage
I have to step up
and out of my grave
like some horror film
that brings back the dead
I’ll have to come down
from out of my head.

And if I come down
because it is my choice
everything will be there
and I’ll have my voice
and have all things that I want
to do what I will
while paying the bills
and saving money
for any ole pill.

Or I can stay
perched up above
and loving the fairytale
and dreaming of love
and fantasize my success
in my head
where it’s best
and continue to die
with nothing left.
