Choose life

Choose Life

We choose our own teachers,
Just as we choose how to live.
We choose when to have faith,
Just as we choose what to see.

It’s just our personal choices that define us,
Including choices we chose not to make.
It may be our subconscious or conscious thoughts,
But it’s the same twenty four hours in this day.

The smallest of choices could change your life
And a choice we chose not to choose
Could have no effect at all.
But if we chose to succeed,
The chance of failure would shorten,
But would anything really change
If we chose nothing at all?

You see I could have chosen not to,
Write these words for you to read.
Just as you could have chosen
Not to use your brain and think,
About the underlying text,
Is it speaking the truth?
This is not my question to answer,
It’s target is not you.

But still you choose to answer,
For you have read so you must speak.
I have no need for any opinion,
I just wrote this for me to read.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
