Choose

By Robert River

I wish, oh wish for another
To make those decisions to uncover.
The truth that lies beyond
Make those choices that respond.

To give away that you can do
Is not being really true.
You are not the one
To cry out and to shun.

We all must make those choices
Rather than listen to mocking voices.
We are not here to rest and lay
For that gives into days of decay.

You are not allowed, you see
To never see what is glee.
For we are not here to feign
Without accomplishing while others complain.

So make the choice that is true to you
And you will find happiness in what you do
Listen to others, but to yourself be true
Life will have meaning and value.
