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.
