Treasure Island

Leigh Ladd

Any Given Moment

Any given moment is a chance to choose,
Turn right then left or up then down,
Give it all up or stay strong and pursue.

Any given moment is a chance to see.
The shadows behind you or the light ahead,
Exist how you were or how you hope to be.

Any given moment is a chance to apologize,
Keep hurting the ones you love or simply say sorry,
Shun them away or raise their spirits high.

Any given moment is a chance to make a change,
Continue to hate or let you heart forgive,
Close off your feelings or give your heart full range.

Any given moment is a chance to develop,
Stick with the old or learn something new,
Paint by numbers or use your life as the palette.

    Ahh, the eternal question, ego over community. Ignore one, and the self withers, ignore the other and they shun. Please yourself, its much faster (and less complicated) .

    I love it!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
