The Choice

Two roads were before me.
Neon lights gleamed
in the distance of the one;
a solitary figure
stood silently on the other…

The sounds of carnival
beckoned from the one;
the silence of the other
frightened me.
The sign of the one
said, “City of Delights" ahead;
the other read
“The Road to Life."

In confusion,
I looked at both;
in decision
I took the hand of the solitary One
and never looked back.

The sun began to rise.
