A Haiku - Problems
A careless word has eternal echoes.
Problems come and go,
Some leave our hearts still aching.
Why? I do not know.
Wise choice is made how?
The worst are of our making.
False choices then....now.
Life? Once me and you.
So make choices wisely now.
Love demands we do.
The chance to change....gone.
The final act unforeseen,
A day with no dawn.
Impulse can betray.
Like footsteps in deep darkness,
Stumbling on today.
