Choices


Compare me to a lonely night,
casted out! lifeless sight
bored, dull, no motion
bright darkness, full of poison

Full of hate, blood and pain
Rain and storms, through the veins
fire and ice, battle fire won
run, run, more, more

Or, Compare me to a sunny day
happy spirits, innocence play
fun, joy, excitement filled
abundant of love, crowd of cheer

Forget the hate, wipe the tears
play in the rain, purify the veins
ice and fire, war fire lost
run no more, stand up and believe

The choice is yours
long as you believe

    Sometimes we let others make our choices.
    It is not a matter if they are right or wrong but it is our choice to make.
    Be it right or wrong we learn to live with our mistakes
    And relish our right ones. (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
