Choices

Some people sit - some people try.
Some people laugh - some people cry.

Some people will - some people won't.
Some people do - some people don't.

Some people believe and develop a plan.
Some people doubt - never think that they can.

Some people face hurdles and give it their best.
Some people back down when faced with a test.

Some people complain of their miserable lot.
Some people are thankful for all that they have got.

And when it's all over - when it comes to an end -
Some people lose out and some people win.

We all have a choice - we all have a say.
We are spectators in life or we get in and play.

Whichever we choose - how we handle life's game.
The choices are ours - no one else is to blame.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
