the opposite of maybe

it’s not the first time
i have to decide
should my life turn left
or should it turn right

do i take an umbrella
when i go along
well, it seems to be sunny
but you never know

are people sad or happy
when they cry?
are you brave or anxious
when you lie?

decisions have to be made
depend on experience and fate
which mature daily –
the opposite of maybe

should my day be arranged
without sense and sorrow
or on the spur of moment
till tomorrow
