Chosing the right path .......

what man doesn't know
the right path to chose ?
the right way to go
You seem a victim of yourself my friend

and yet who will you blame now
searching in the one way mirrors
that gave you a choice
to win lose

but what will you do
continue to avoid the right choice
Isn't it all about impulse control
right now....... one voice

remember that old term from
ions ago ....."how you gonna act "
These choices are yours to make and you
know what....... thats a fact


As I observe our culture today I see men [boys?] making the wrong choices time after time after time , and I wonder haven't we reinvented the same wheel enough as
Men !....Hmmmmm?

Unfortunately, it is reminiscent of hamsters on a wheel.

One way mirrors - fantastic phrase to describe the determination to go down that road even when they know its the wrong choice.

Sometimes it is hard to make the right choice, but we do have to try.

Are there things in my life I could have done better? All in all I am extremely satisfied. Are my kid like me? I made presentations among people who could have done so much more. But I stopped getting frustrated. I am happy with my life.

Never gonna happen, it's a cycle, fresh blood every generation, some do choose the easy road, some take the bumpy one. If they are strong enough they survive. It would be nice though...

Everyone takes the wrong path now and them I think what the problem is is that there are so many paths to choose from and so few people to give advice about making the right choices.

Voted up! This rings of truth and it's message is one that has been echoed through time. It seems to be louder in our day and age. Hope this does wake some of us up.

Man, you have got human nature down to a T!

For some reason - my mind has gone to the housing market crash - when everyone blamed everyone else - the banks, the mortgage companies...etc..

While they were/are as corrupt and self-serving as hell - i always asked myself why these folks didn't seem to take ANY personal responsibility!

Call me a dumb canuck - but - where i come from - when ya make 40,000/yr - it doesn't take a BANKER to tell me that i can't afford a million dollar house!


Then there's those greedy folks that are crying cause they lost 'millions' to Bernie Madoff..

Again - he's a thief - BUT - where i come from (lol) if it looks like a canada goose, and it quacks like a canada goose - it IS a damned canada goose!


rant done - it's election day - i'm a little keyed up...(that's my excuse today..haha)

sharing your brilliant work, cowboy!

Interesting perspective. One of the best things about being human is we get to make choices. It is our right and our freedom. That being said, sometimes we suceed and sometimes we fail. Very thought provoking!

Now, here's another one for us to think about...but I've been there where I thought was the correct path for me, only to realize, it wasn't. What did I do? I changed gear and change happened. Change is good.

We all have choices and the freedom to do so and that's a fact, Jack! Ok, that's your line ahorseback. (:

Kidding aside, this is lovely and so thought provoking. Voted up and sharing!

Love from the sky~

Exactly. We seem to make the same mistakes, over and over again. When will wake up? Excellent words.
