Choices

Life is in the morning you wake up
You’re lying there and thinking
About getting up right away
or hanging on for another five minutes or ten
And you’re done taking shower
You’re standing there
in front of your closet and thinking
About which clothes you’re going to wear
About which jeans best matched
a nice blue shirt you just pick out
About which bag and which shoes
to suit the outfit you have taken

Life is also when you’re ready
And you’re still standing there and thinking
About having your breakfast now
or later in the office
Then you check your watch
And it’s too late for breakfast and
off you go and still thinking
About driving your own car
or taking public transportations
And, about which one would take you faster
A bus or a train

Life is also when you’re sitting there
on a bus you finally take
You’re turning on your music player and thinking
About which song you would love to hear
And you’re listening to the song you select
And still thinking
About what menu you will have for lunch
A Western, or Asian
A Middle-Eastern, or Else

And on and on and on

Then you’re lying there in your bed at night
and still thinking
About what to do tomorrow
About whom you will go with
Emma, or Jessy
Ali, or Jose
To which cafe, or mall
or to never mind all of the plans
and just stay at home

Cause life is always about the choices you take
The choices after every choice made
It always gives you options
and never stops
