The choice

What if you were given the illusion

of a choice

in which you leapt off the rocky ledge

of a very high cliff

to claim the promise

you gave yourself as a younger

and wiser person

before the unexpected turns

of life brought you

to the puzzling person you appear

to have become

the other possible result

of your brave illusion of choice

is that you could continue

falling and falling

through the imaginary space

you created with no end in sight
