129. First Things First


Newspaper, dinner menu, TV

A book, game or an art

One decision decides destiny

To know the direction of heart

Life, a puzzle irreversible

A jigsaw to forever confuse

Indecision makes love inedible

A fact one cannot refuse

Self-help books galore

Each with a lesson for optimism

Yet with little answer in store

As hard as Confucianism

Often life is Greek to me

Drowned by multiple priorities

I cannot just let it be

Torn by dark dualities

Little respite from this agony

A conundrum staring in the eye

Making my soul a malady

Wings slashed, no desire to fly

As I meditate on it with resolve

An answer transpires in mind

A simple question to solve

To ask oneself honestly to find

As an artist to design

Ask, “What do I want to get?”

Make a clearly drawn line

Mull for months till the answer is set
