Juxtaposition

So many things
within
the context of day to day

Hold us
Whole

Which, If suddenly eroded

Through whatever cause

Leave us

breathless
barely able to
survive

Thrown up upon
these rocks

uncertain of the tides

And yet
Even within this

does
Choice arise

Always calling

on us

to decide

We can

‘come up on life surprised’

in a quandary
to know
what to do

or simply choose
as best we can
in any moment

But to do that

We must
believe
in our choice

Choose,
and believe

Believe and choose

either way

We lean
on our own behalf

in a direction

Or not

Or doubt
and doubt ourselves

or
choose
in which direction
we will lean

We can choose
in what light
we will encounter life

In what frame of mind
we will
embark upon the journey

And in those moments
when we
cannot find our way
know what to do

we can
still

Remember
we
have a choice

In what direction
we will lean

For us
Or against us

Despair or possibility

If we are to reach them
We must

Carry ourselves
to those
places we long to be
