How to tell
Truth from falsehood
Heaven from Hell
Real from fake
We know them well

But how distinguish
When needs must
Worm from snake 
Ashes from dust
Success from failure 
Love from lust 
Doubt from certainty
Dependence from commitment

Try as I must
My heart to trust
My beclouded eye
Will not verify
And while discernment strives
Doubt to dispel
The sounding knell

My last farewell
Looms large

Still all is doubt
In or out
The choice is mine
The bottom line
Do I accept

Do I decline

Discernment gone
In doubt
I live on
