Poem - The Lists

“The Lists” is about taking stock of life, with dissection of “reasons why” determining a course.


The Lists

Here I stand to make a choice
between the dark and the light
in that space the roles may switch
from the norm that life requests

it’s a choice of pros and pros
solely held in my hand
making lists for each point
reasons for, not against

the balance point is in my head
a question mark in life’s quest
the metronome that ticks my life
a clock unwinding in God’s sight

ask me now how I feel
the positive may leave my lips
another time would be different
the negative I’d share with you

back to the lists, all the pros
asking which will be the light
as the darkness bides its time
in the future or in the now.
