choices

everyday we make choices —
do I go up, do I go down
do I go all around?
sometimes those choices
are very, very hard
to make
because things could break,
will break, have to break.
you can’t get at what is inside
without breaking the seal;
if the cancer is there,
it has to be removed
before it consumes
and destroys
everything.
to leave it
would be unethical,
immoral — unless,
unless, unless. yes,
there are choices
to be made.
life is not easy;
there are always
choices.
you can’t get the
truth without
cracking the code;
the egg is in your
hand;
do you get the yoke?
well, of course not.
you can’t get the yoke
without cracking the
shell.
