Decisions in life determine destiny,
Choices galore with and without ceremony.
From simple yes or no;
To complex stop or go.
Like a fork on a boulevard,
But without a google map to guard.
Some use logic, reason and experiences to decide,
For others, its their heart’s desire that they bide.
Some can carve a balance,
For others its one stance.
Decisions occupy so much mental space,
Make our head and heart race.
I wonder what life would be without needing to decide?
To flow freely without decisions to make and bide.
A carefree existence,
Without decisions encumbrance.
With having nothing to confide or decide,
But to let life flow freely as an ocean tide.
Will that be a simple life?
Bereft of all cares and strife.
