I sit at the window

And stare sightlessly outside

Decisions weigh heavy on my mind

Which path do I take?

The one my heart points me towards?

Or the one my conscience points me to?

And who's to say which is the right one?

If it were only myself involved

The choice would be so much easier

But other lives will be touched by this

People I love, and who love me

There are no easy answers

Perhaps there are no answers at all

And the decision must be mine alone

No one can make it for me

So I sit here

The weight of the world on my shoulders

My mind spinning with thoughts

And no solution in sight
