Choosing Sides

Life gives us opportunities. Good! Life gives us two opportunities at the same time. Trouble Calling!
The topic was suggested by Swapnil, my schoolmate – Choosing Sides, the toughest thing to do.
Life is like a maze –

A variety of options, three ways to go, but only one way leads to the goal, other two may go far, but the goal is still distant. And why I say life is a maze, is that, once you select which way to go, its not the end of it, you have dilemmas coming.

Which way shall I opt for,
In front of me lay options enough,
The problem is to choose one only
Enter Dilemma, and the going gets tough

I enter the shopping mall,
5 companies selling Tomato Ketchup
One may make my Maggi taste better
The others may taste a syrup

I get admitted to class 11
Three streams to choose from
All the three have well in front
Which one apt for my brain’s ROM*

My science Olympiad is here,
The very first question stands erect
The little brainstorming, a little guesswork
4 choices, and only one is correct.

I want to get rid of these dilemmas
Choosing sides, is really tough
Standing between the two choices,
Held by the scruff.
