“The still point of the turning world. Neither from nor towards, neither arrest nor movement ….” T.S. Eliot

The Choice

If I stand here,
where do I stand when this
place is between one thing and another,
if the choice is between two sources of
happiness can I be happy between or,
must I choose the not between and,
having chosen, will I be filled with regret,
being accused by that not chosen or,
will I take refuge in the moment?
