Can’t Opt

I can’t opt
can’t choose
I just do
whatever comes,
which often
unravels
the way I’m
seen, the way they shun

Choices are but steps
earthly in command
but digressive to one’s stance
are the sidetracks of chance
that operate outside control

in-pause events

circumvent the

loneliness involved

in navigating through
a world of I can’t wait

and despite knowing
what I’ve always known
in spite of the
betrayal
and the shame that’s ever shown

I bend my knees
just the same
walking
as if
I’m alone

with all the thoughts I own

I can’t opt
can’t choose
yet please, do not confuse
I’m well aware, that
with indecision,
one increases their
opportunity to lose

which is, of course,

simply another opportunity to opt and choose

About hobgoblin2011

I'm a poet and aspiring screenwriter/songwriter with a passion for film, art, photography, philosophy and heavy metal. I love reading, mainly non-fiction, comic books, graphic novels, myth and reference. Family always comes first for me. I'm a proud father to two wonderful pups and two curious cats. I'm also a glutton for punishment aka the life of being a diehard Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan.
