The Power of Choice

More by this author
People are blind
Clouded by temptation
And by selfishness
What was once of value becomes deluded

Spiraling down into a world
Set on a path of deception
Where you find yourself lost
Step by step
Forgetting who you were
Until you give up on yourself
Bad choice

Although life pulls a person in many directions
It remains important to stay true
Choose to stand tall
And be proud of you
Choose to take a step forward; always
So that you remain positive
Choose to be determined
And create a mirror of achievements
Choose to vow honesty
And never lie; most importantly to yourself
Choose to be open minded
So you can understand diversity
Choose to inspire
Write a story of self discovery

The right choice is
Not always easy to make;
Nor is it always what you want;
But anything else leads you astray

Potential waiting to be discovered
Locked away until you exercise
The power of choice
