The Valley of Indecision

Lost in the valley of indecision Forever caught between here and there My mind is divided, my soul is torn And monstrous phantoms are everywhere There's neither light, nor is there darkness Here in this barren oasis of grey Trapped somewhere in between questions and answers Groping and grasping to find my way I'll lose my mind if I go on performing This balancing act between madness and death A stand is needed for yea or for nay Or else very soon I may draw my last breath Deciding that I cannot make a decision Embracing the madness instead of this yoke The phantoms encroaching, I suddenly jumped up And out of this horrible nightmare I woke © Mike Wise 9/17/14
