- What Matters
I am faced with a choice.
I feel like the world waits upon me,
Their eyes digging deeper into my soul.
The moment is filled with silence,
And as still as a cat,
The question taunts me,
And I get increasingly nervous.
How can anyone expect me to make
Such a major decision
With so little precious time.
Are people staring?
Is it noticeable how substantially difficult
This seemingly simple choice has become?
Reality seems to flood me at once,
And the solemn voice asks me once more:
“Sir, would you like some fries with that?”
Suddenly, my brain clicks as the glorious,
And fulfilling answer seeps into my consciousness
“Nah, Maybe next time.”
I am a bird,
Free to fly as it chooses!
This monumental responsibility,
It plagues me no longer.
The sweet aroma of burgers fills the car interior,
As I set off down the long dusty road.
I am filled with euphoria,
as I emerge from the drive-thru.
