Our Choices - Poem by Lisa Cresswell Wilkinson

The true person is hidden inside yourself
But do they come out or stay buried inside?
One of you will: the other will hide
It's the way your life goes
Which determines 'Who' shows
Decisions in life we make ourselves
But is that really true?
Life throws things at us at certain points
Which leaves us feeling blue
Feel the contentment inside you
And your true colours will shine through
When life gets you down
Let your faith keep you going
And the love for yourself
Will carry on showing
Never forget to hold your head high
Believe in yourself
And your faith shall not die
Hold on to what you want to be
To keep your real identity
Bad times aren't a choice
Just a simple 'trouble and strife'
But if you're strong within yourself
You'll learn to cope with life
To live and learn without distress is the secret key to happiness.

    A wonderful 'choice' of endings, Lisa... wisely stated words to live by. Great write!
