Decisions, Decisions

September 1, 2023

It’s a choice only we can make.

Feelings are fleeting—fickle.

Fate is for the mystical.

Letting love pass is the biggest mistake.


Talking it out,

beating around

what we’re fighting about,

doubt sets in.

Patience runs thin.


You crack your neck,

my face strains—



Silence drops like a pin.

Lighting strikes the chest.

What shoe drops next?

You reel in my stream

of catastrophes.

“Don’t panic, we’re a team.”



Kailani Norwell is an amateur writer. She writes for the love of writing. It is her sincerest form of expression—a way to put her wide-ranging ideas and life experiences into something cohesive. As a clinical therapist, she helps others find, listen to, and use their voice. And her writing is her voice. The world as she experiences it is her inspiration, and her love of personal flair fuels her style. She doesn’t think she’s to write the next great American novel, but she’s to write something. Stay curious.
