Incessant Indecision



Incessant indecision can imprison minds.
It locks-up by revision
alternatives one finds.

Incessant indecision can generate swirls.
It shatters by collision
both progress and deferrals.

Incessant indecision can omit forked lanes.
It sunders by division
all pathways of the twains.

Incessant indecision can decimate choice.
It uproots by incision
each option one gives voice.

Incessant indecision can throttle action.
It stifles by small vision
complete satisfaction.

Incessant indecision can freewill besmirch.
It subdues by derision
leaving one in the lurch.
