CHOICES

By Fran Watson

You can do and you can be
whatever you want.
You have the power
and the right
to make the changes.

There are changes to be made
as daily life goes by.
There are changes in our world
and changes in our lives.
There are those who come
and those who go.
There are those who enrich,
and those who drain.
There are thoughts
which improve our daily grind,
and there are thoughts
that depress us and bring us down.

Every chance meeting,
every friendship,
every love,
changes us inside and out
in ways we neither see
nor notice
until sometime later.
All of a sudden we encounter
an old circumstance
but we handle it in a new way
a better way.
The changes have caused us to grow,
to improve
and we can move on
unafraid.

You have one life to live;
don't let it count for naught;
you have too much to give.
