    we choose to laugh
    or we choose to cry

    we choose to fight
    or we choose to die

    we choose to love
    or we choose to hate

    every heart does choose its fate
    giving energy where it participates

    we choose to tear each other down
    or we choose to build on solid ground

    we choose to respect our Sister's place
    or we choose her husband and smile in her face

    we choose to give our elderly loving care
    or we choose to keep our children unaware

    we choose to give ourselves away
    or we choose the price that others pay

    we choose to break our partner's heart
    or we choose to stay faithful from the start

    we choose to live in the light
    or we choose that darkness is alright

    it's all a choice ... which way we go
    what we do ... how we flow

    each one bringing a life to the table
    do with it the best you are able

    ...definitely

    ...a choice
    good or bad
    right or wrong
    sane or temporarily insane
    we have choices...some taken lightly...


    good eye opener sis...

    i will...

    ...endeavor,
    while at the table
    bringing my best
    all that i'm able
    given my choice
    to sit among QUEENS
    i feel it's my duty
    to perform as a KING

    but...
    that's my choice.

    THANKS DESTEE

    This is rhymic wisdom to the point. I preach to myself often about choice. In fact, it's one of my favorite conversation themes when talking to my teenagers. This should be posted on billboards girlfriend!
