Trigger Warning

Should I float down, or fly even higher?
Stay in or venture in the open?

Should I expose myself to others,
Or spiral inside stone cocoon?

Ivory tower or watch tower?
Water tower or hunter’s tower?

Is it better to stay below,
Or go up to see the big picture?

Should I indulge my mania
To visit yet more towers?

Is it better to always ask questions
Or to avoid answers sometimes?
