I stand here

Inert

Facing forward

Watching life amongst the outlandish

I can now choose

A new path

A new venture

A new light or darkness

As I look right

I see familiar faces

They beckon with a waft of the arm

I smile

Their gestures become an invitation

Calling my sobriquet

I look away

I focus to the left

I see faceless spirits cloaked in formal attire

They all readjust their ties simultaneously

Their eyes then pierce through mine

A chortle

Just as welcoming

I avert my eyes downward

I hear a crowd through billowing fog

I witness arms springing through the air

They rise and fall

No faces

No solicitation

Just hedonism

I wake from my stupor

Averting my attention upward

I observe a blinding euphoria

No faces, solicitation, or guidance

Just unlimited prospective

So, I face forward

Bemused

Where do I go next?

Who do I choose to be?

Right, Left, Down, or Up
