Choices

Helping a friend, a kind friend, a confused friend, one who contradicts herself, hurts herself through her contradictions. This poem came to my mind while I was giving some advice and help.


 

Choices,

Turn right or left
Choose to do, choose to leave,
Choose to stay, or to go,
Choose to love, or to not.

What is more important,
Than the specific choice to be made?

Owning your choice.

You have to make a choice,
Right or wrong in hindsight,
Leading to pain or freedom
To be regretted or heralded,

The importance is the making of a choice and owning it.

One must not like their choice, to own it.

A choice leading to pain,
Leading to the hurt,
For yourself and for others
You made that choice,
Hurt, despair, pain, all come with.

You made the choice.
You have to own it.
You have to live with it.

A choice leading to light,
Leading to ecstatic enjoyment,
For yourself and for others,
You made that choice,
Happiness, comfort, warmth, all come with.

You made the choice.
You have to own it.
You have to live with it.
