Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “pro/con.” Talk about the pros and cons of anything. Enjoy!


To fight to decide
With my heart or my head
Weigh up the pros the cons
Clinical logic so cold
But unclouded by emotion
A torrid boiling soup
Bubbles burning thinking
Explosive and tumultuous
No space for clarity
Too rushed
Too sudden
Too much
I seek out the little girl
The only choice
Favourite colour
Favourite food
Or favourite friend
Until it was mother
Or father
With siblings or not
Scorching selection
Of a mere child
Grown too quick
Too fast
Too rapid
Out of context
Missing milestones
Due to circumstance
Beyond control
The weight
Of a thousand worlds
Life undone
