'No in-betweens please' poem published in my book 'From the Silence Within'

“No in betweens please”                                                       -  2nd Nov’2001

Life is like a game of cards.
You place the right ones next to the other.
All the problems would seemingly disappear.
Yet one wrong move can wreck
And there goes the lot tumbling the whole deck !!

You can make mistakes and yet win.
But in real life there is nothing in between.
Either you can be scared or venture your first step.
Either you can love or you can hate.

Either you can live or you can die.
Either it is a yes or it is a no.
Either there is today or there is tomorrow.
Either you can trust or you can betray.

Either you can laugh or you can cry.
Either you are sad or you are happy.
Either  you can live it up or always compromise.
Life is for real – either it is do or it is die.
In Life,  there are No in betweens, please.

Either you can be scared or you can venture your first step.
Either you can forgive and forget or you can prolong your misery.
Either you can stay put or give up.
Either you can scratch and fight or be everyone’s merry delight.

The choice is yours to make.
You either choose and live up to it or remain dangling no where.
Because Life is for real.
Either it’s a do or not to do.
For there are no in - betweens please !!!
