Decision


(Rhythm Guitar INTRO)

You’ve arrived at the time and place
You always did what you were afraid to do

Now, watch your fears take over you
Watch those fears become your God

It was your decision

(All instruments BEGIN)

You chose to stay when all would run
You chose to run when everyone stayed

It was your decision

You eased the flames that burnt inside
You said you’ll fake it until you make it happen

Selfish beings we are, we think of ourselves
But, then is it wrong to think of ourselves?

Sometimes an afterthought
Can stop us from being bought

It is your decision

Don’t let him stand before you
And say it’s over
Nothing is over
Until you think it’s over

(Drum FILL)
(Guitar SOLO)

Selfish beings we are, we think of ourselves
But, then is it wrong to think of ourselves?

Sometimes an afterthought
Can stop us from being bought

It was your decision
It is your decision
It will be your decision
It always is your decision

(Instrumental FADE OUT)

Giving power to fear is in fact making it God. Sometimes we make good decisions and sometimes they are not wise decisions. A decision is making a choice. A decision is something we think about and move on the decision. As far as thinking of ourselves I have learned in the past few years how important it is to think or ourselves, in the way I mean taking care of ourselves. Being healthy. I really like the one line in this post about an afterthought keeping us from being bought. One final thought can make something clear and can keep us from taking a road with nails.

wow beautiful and quite different
Tough decisions and ability to stay on is indeed tougher....u depicted that quest within quite well.
Nice work.

We own more choices than we realize. This is wonderful. God bless.

Nicely written AJ. This piece certainly levels a challenge to each of us.

Shadow said...

decisions, decisions... once made, we should stand by them. scared we may be, fear is a powerful force to contend with when it comes to the unknown, but damn, the satisfaction of having done it, achieved it, how rewarding is that....

Rainbow dreams said...

we own our decisions, noone else can own them. We consider them and should always give time for the afterthought :) I like that!

but once made, is the fear of moving forwards more than the fear of staying put and never knowing?

Sometimes we just need to put fear oneside and taking care of ourselves as best we can, put our best foot forwards and see what lies ahead. Trust that all will be well.

Will be back later to comment on previous posts... :)
