Choices


Do l have the choice to work?
Destiny of choices
I never asked to be born. Do l have a choice?
I cried, slept and ate.
I crawled, walked and fell
I grew inch by inch
What a choice
I wore rags in cloths
School thought me of choices
Destiny led me on
Not giving me a choice
For destiny knew what was, what is and what will be.
I grew with no choices.
I made choices

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
