Decision Time

Decision Time
Face the facts
You messed up, can't go back
Can't rewind, undo, renew
Time surges onwards, you got left behind
Shame about that
Hard to admit that you were wrong
Can't face yourself
The mirror shows the ugly truth
Inconvenient and unfortunate
But real, this is the reality
This is your life and you can't bear it
You made yourself the badge but you're too ashamed to wear it
Too late, it's gone on too long
Have to hash together the last remains
Compromise and make the most of it
You hate it, hate yourself
So much that you can't even tell yourself properly
Address your words to some invisible second person
The you is me
Regret washes over and I sink;
It's decision time
I look back and think that now it is 
Decision time
And I'm scared, so afraid
Already ruining those carefully constructed plans
That were never quite made.
