“Give up; it’s time to walk away.

Now”!

Urged my soul-mate

“Not as yet”, confronted another

 

“You’ve come a long way,

It has worked!

Or you made it work

Well, in certain parts at least”.

Deliberation and defences

Vigilantly duplicated

 

“Shut up”, countered the heretic

The primary champion of my cause

“Don’t forget the fractured fragments of self

Crushed along the way

Indispensable at the beginning

Irredeemable and cast away”

 

“The odds are long...

Are you ready? To take a chance

To bet your bottom dollar,

To take a huge leap of faith

To dodge your duties, after all

Only losers quit”

Reproached, my self-proclaimed benefactor

 

I watch in silence, disconcerted

Discretely making notes

As my companions compete

Seeking my concurrence

My vote of confidence

Withheld

 

The combat continues

Hesitation and confusion

Building barricades

Moments of surety fleeting

 

I let the voices

Debate

To fall asleep, fatigued

These demons inside my head

My benefactor

My Friend, my foe

They hang around

To pick another day

To decode the dilemma

To be or not to be

To stay or walk away

 

It is one thing to move on

But another

To decide when to

Moving on ..

To another day
