One Choice

One choice
and he could lose all he ever earned.
One pull of a trigger,
One sharpen of a blade,
and he could lose that beautiful wife that he can call his own.

Loses that shining BMW in the driveway-
once gleaming in the bright sun of something that once was
- and isn't anymore.
One choice.
Loses friends, family, goals and dreams,
Life once blurry, now clear as it seems.
Wars faught in his mind - making him think
he was wrong.
He didn't belong.

Or so he thought.
Now loved ones mourn and cry out distraught.
One choice.
Peaceful, undisturbed sleep
is now six feet deep.
One choice.
