Cat - Black

Poem - Choices Made

The poem “Choices Made” was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend. They are one of the more incredible people I know. They were also pursuing a very personal path of discovery. Along the way, they were getting grief from hypocrites and gatekeepers, both attempting to nudge my friend from their journey. I advised them to keep on keeping on.

Choices Made

The choices made between adults
behind closed doors or in a club
are the world they all indulge
without permission of the crowd
passing boundaries most adhere
in pursuit of painful joy
releasing more than most can see
upon requests of misery

the scenery may seem extreme
mocking norms vanillas seek
access given is power based
sourced from assent all convey
sadly more will mock intent
beyond the ones that can’t relate
these are heretics of the life
full of power they contrive

fools acting like small gods
even though none were ordained
except for a brief time
and even then they’re cast aside
there are none above the rest
outside of choices in a scene
put out of mind the pundit’s whine
that buzzing sound none should mind

please do as little as you wish
or strive to take in the world
safety held to the breasts
allows for actions in full consent
these choices are singular
made by the one without regret
when the pleasures are much more
than innocence turned outward.
