Life’s choices,

Are often hard to make.

You are troubled by the voices,

Of your heart and mind.


Things are never simple,

For one choice would mean,

Giving up another,

Which was also equally close to you.


Would you give up,

The desires of your heart?

Or would you give up,

What seems logical?


I don’t know,

Which way to go,

I stand here,

At quatervois.


Quatervois :a crossroads; or a critical decision or turning point in one’s life.

Language : English

Origin : French


I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that are just beautiful.

    Sounds perfectly French and oh so beautiful! Your writeup does complete justice to the word.

  3. At various points in time I’ve given up the heart and logic when asked to choose… Not always ended well. But i guess it comes down to the individual as well as that moment in time.

    What a beautiful word that is! And you did justice to it by your words, Reema <3
