To Be or Not To Be

To be practical,
or to be impractical?
To be imaginative,
or to be unimaginative?

To choose wisely,
or to choose instinctively,
To bet on experience,
or to bet on inspiration

In the suicidal leap,
A reliable fallback option,
In the conventional decision,
An adventurous endevour

A bit of both,
So as to not become,
Old and jaded,
or fresh and foolish

But rather,
Wise and instinctive,
A sword and a shield,
At each opportunity
