The Candy Horizon

18 Decide

Decide which way to turn
Or fall, dispirited,
Against the wall
Without an aim, a whim or will
And lie there
Where the world is still and comfortable

Decide which hand to shake
Or lose the race
And never break the tape
Alone for all the world to see
And die there
On your own and without sympathy
