The road is narrow
Options are disappearing
I’m walking the line

Haibun: It’s Up To You

The tension is palpable.
We stand at the crossroads.
It is clear which road
we should take,
yet ultimately it’s our choice.
Let’s not pretend we don’t know
but don’t let me be the one who said:
“I told you so.”

Now at breaking point
Desperate actors go rogue
Pray deliverance
