Fight or Flee

Fight or Flee

 
Basic instinct takes over
cornered by the hounds
of life
forced back to the wall
by the trials and tribulations
of society
when push comes to shove
when caught between a rock
and a hard place
each one has to choose
each follows their inner voice
their creed
their values
their instincts
and lays down the gauntlet
or turns on their heels
and no one
no person other than the self
has any right to judge
the choice
of the individual
conscience
