The Road Down

Tomorrow left abandoned

with every choice I make

Constricting all potential joy

and limiting my fate

Each short term indecision

restricting unrestrained

My future playing out of tune

a timed and dull refrain

Most often I have missed it

when no outweighs a yes

For temporal gain my judgment strained

—an orphan in regress
