Either Or


A focus can only be one
Life holds many a sum
Anger, fear, malice, indifference
Joy, exaltation, serenity, ecstasy
Those that contradict cannot last at once
Those that supplement cannot survive apart
The focus is yours, the subject a choice
To do as you will, you are responsible for life
To spend in agony the fruit of one's time?
Or melt in the ecstasy of glory's divine?
To achieve the exultance that fulfills a height?
Or succumb to the demons and relinquish one's might?
To forfeit one's life in negation of its right?
Or fulfill the essence of the greatness one finds?
To fly to the sun and burst into light?
Or fall to the ocean and sink into night?
Of these are a path you'll deliver your life
To your own fuel it will fall to tend to your light
The focus is yours, the subject a choice
To do as you will, you are responsible for life
