Like in most important matters, between choices
There are pros and cons in every candidate
Should I chain myself or remain freely celibate?
Should I risk it and listen to my inner voices?
Loneliness, it does exist, but I hate regrets
Still, I would feel better alone than in bad company
It could be a lovely harmony or a bitter symphony
Above all, I must consider my fading sunsets
At times, I can barely bear myself, but I’m patient
I am a magnet to mistakes; I know that is my weakness
A charming person can turn into a monster of Loch Ness
Love’s alien to me, and love’s my heart’s main nutrient
What should I do, forever disappear, or eternally join?
Failure or success, satisfaction or disillusion
Such a dilemma, a simple yes or no . . . a final solution
Like in most important matters, between choices . . . I’ll flip a coin.
