The Gates of Choice

Facing the VoidWe are at the threshold
Of a descent
Or an ascent
We could rise higher
Or we could sink lower

That dilemma is
Alive in the heart
Of each man and woman

Descend into the deadly vortex
Of individual and collective
Ego wars, wars that can
Never be won

Or ascend beyond ego
Into an expanded
That sees itself
In the other
Because it knows
There is no other

One is war
The other is Peace

And we are at the gates
Of choice.
