via Daily Prompt: Or
My alarm sings to wake me up
From the deep, long slumber spent in my cozy bed
And the first thing I do on coming to senses
Is fighting my urge to go back instead
To the dreamland, forcing my alarm to shut up
And sitting still for a while, warring
Should I return to this mundane world?
Should I go back to my sleep, curled
Up in my soft nest, without concern
Like a fetus, blissfully withdrawn
From the noise and violence without.
But, then I have to, I have to get up!
And resume my duties for the day
Immersing myself in reality again
Going through the cycle of pleasure and pain.
This is the first choice I make
In a day filled with temptations that shake
My resolve to live a worthy life,
Conquering my inner strife.
Life is a result of the options we take,
Choosing among alternatives along the way.
It is ‘this OR that’, but no retake
Till we say goodbye to another day.
