POEM| Undecided

Making decisions
has never been
my strongest suit
because I always
find it hard

to choose anything 
even when I have
only two options
or no option at all
I still debate
and weigh the pros and cons

I talk to people
to seek advice
but when it’s time
to decide

I still can’t decide
I know that
making decisions

is a necessary part of life
I have to deal with forever
but I will rather
not have to decide

If I could

I hate it when people
make decisions for me
but I’m sure I wouldn’t mind
If I didn’t know that they did
me people say
not making a decision
is a decision itself
while other people say
I already made a decision
but I just don’t want to agree with myself

I don’t know if they are right
but I had to decide
if writing about this
was a good idea or not
and I decided to
I decided!
