Simple Truth

I met simple truth while walking from the store.

A lady saw me struggling with too many bags

and offered a lift. I refused. I should not have.

Half way across the busy street, one bag slipped

and oranges went into busy traffic.

.

Simple Truth met me on the other side

of the street laughing gut wrenchingly at my

bad choices; going to the store alone,

buying too much, refusing the ride.

.

I glared at the simpleton, Truth.

Eyed him hard, and kept walking,

lamenting lost oranges and the ride

I should have taken.

to not go left

or deny right.

Choice is there

it is the point

decide or not

stay here

or not.
