when one must make a decision,
you think over it carefully.
when this decision effects only you,
it can be easy.
but when it effects some one else,
it becomes difficult and confusing.
when you must make a decision for yourself and another,
your judgement can become...... blurred.
one choice is good for you,
and the other better for the other.
what if whats good for you will ruin the other,
and whats good for the other will ruin you.
should one do for themselves,
be happy while the other suffers.
or suffer while the other is happy.
the answer is simple.......
if you love them,
then you will sacrifice anything for them....
and if they love you,
then there is a third option,
an option in which no one suffers.
this is true because love is a separate choice all together.
no one should suffer.
and both should be happy.
so i think when there is love,
there is no decision,
there is only whats right.
