Only Choice

There is a big, heavy wall tied behind your back; There is only one road, You start walking, the wall drags along You stop, the wall stops behind your back You turn around, But you only bump yourself against the wall Stop and stay, Or go till beyond, This is your only choice Keep going you will get tired as you go, Bearing the wall behind your back But stay still, What more can you do You can't go back You can go forward Or You can stay This is your only choice, In Life
