our decisions


we like

to imagine

that a decision

is a transition

 

that it is

a spectrum

that it is

a gradient

 

because

we are

threatened

by our decisions

 

and slow things

put us at ease

 

but

before and after

is a demarcation

a quantum leap

an all of a sudden

 

once

we decide

that we are

something else

that we are

someone else

 

that decision

forms the center

around which all else spins

 

it is the decision

that is the change

and decisions

are swift things

 

we fear

the idea

of decisions

arriving too early

 

of them

sneaking up on us

of them

taking us unawares

 

because

we are

threatened

by our decisions

 

and swift things

destroy our ease

 

but at times

before and after

is a victory

a liberation

a salvation

 

and once

we decide

that we are

something more

that we are

someone greater

 

that decision

creates the gravity

around which we orbit

 

it is our decisions

that shape our lives

and our decisions

are powerful things
