Of Victims And Victors - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

We are all victims and victors
of our choices and decisions!
Each day our innate freedom
makes us journey to the
known and unknown heights.
We can act with precision
or act with faith in the heart.

We are victims of our own
limitations as humans
when our plans and efforts fail
no matter how hard we try;
We are not masters over nature
We are not masters over
others’ choices and decisions.

We can only do what we can
as limited and mortal humans
But if I were to choose
given the chance to be victors
over the chance to be victims,
I would rather choose
just to keep my responsible freedom.
