Half full or half empty?
While the answer doesn't matter
the question sure as hell does.
How often will I return here?
And is the problem the places I go
or the me I bring with?
If the glass is half full
then everything is okay
and circumstance is the only drama.
But if half empty,
is the dwindling worse
than my obsession with the question?
There is worse than have or not have
there is when you do not
or cannot know.
Is it worse to make the best
of the indeterminent
or to grow old and die alone?
