Crossroads

It’s a first
But you haven’t yet acknowledged
The conclusive evidence
Put simply
You’re surviving
You could boost your health
Add to your wealth
With stealth
Increase your field of vision
Wait for the past
To sneak up
Grab you
Drag your body down
And leave you behind
Failing to respond
To your slip shod world
Means you’re flawed
Overawed
You could revert back
To the first person
Plan a tactical assault
Command the future
Strive to quell
The outer reaches
Of confusion
It’s not complicated
Once you establish a connection
And don’t come back as an echo
