I DECIDE

I was thinking about all of the struggle and turmoil that gets reported to us each day.  I was reminded that each person gets to choose his or her identity and quality of life, even when others vie so hard to take control

 

This poem is dedicated to each of you, dear readers.  May you recognize your ownpower, rights and choices:

****

 

Things may happen
In the world around me;
But I decide
Who I’m going to be.

 

Tragedy tries
To steal joy away;
But that is mine
To choose every day.

 

Fear does its best
To destroy my peace;
But I hold fast;
With courage that won’t cease.

 

Unhappy news
Intrudes on swift wings;
But I refuse
To hear what it brings.

 

The power is mine
To live well and strong;
I am the one
Who sings my own song.
