Quick snap.

Backtrack to old haunts.

Seedy surroundings.

Shady thoughts.

Evolution takes blow. Years regress–just like that.

Recognize, step back—

From setback comes wisdom for the taking.

Resolve carries or fails, time follows shaking.

Tread with care, the road shortens or lengthens from here.

Decide and abide. The moment of choice flashes with the flutter of an eye.
