choosing to live

I remember it clearly.

The image.  Two pathways.

One, to live.

The other to die.  To quit, lay down, give up.

I knew no one would fault me.

Both were acceptable, given the circumstances.

I thought about dying.  Peaceful.  Painless.

I thought about my family.  My friends.  My son.

And then I got up.  Braced myself for the day,

and took the first step toward living.
