Choices and Who Makes Them

Updated on May 29, 2010

When We Do Or Die

Lets say for the sake of it

We want to change our mind today

We want to be different than all the other times in the past

Is it a Crime?

To want something different than the rest

To want to scratch that feeling deep in your chest

It seems that everyone else is happy with the same old watering hole

It is time to take a walk further to a new beach and explore

Who we meet we will soon find out

Good move or bad move to early to tell

Up and on our way

Not even a good luck from friends who we knew for years

Where is the loyalty and understanding ?

We are following are dreams

Where they begin and how long they will last

Is only a matter of time and patience to see it through

I wish you were with me

It would be so much easier to begin again

Why must something new be so hard ?

You are taking on new challanges and risks

You carry every memory with you right on your hips

You wish people well and the best of luck when they move on

I guess some people are different and they just want you hanging around

For a long long time until they decide to make their move

You will be happier where you are going

You can feel it from your gut

An instinct you have learned to trust

It is your sight through the darkest nights

It is your safety through the roughest toraine

It is your passion through all your pain

I congratulate all those who walk onto success

Those who never look back and leave the nest

A struggle they are wiling to accept

No matter what cost or how inadequate they may seem

They push on to become nothing but the cream of the crop

The best they have ever been

Their vision is one of Victory and satisfaction

Let's all take a look at our own lives and see what we can change

Always for the better and someday we will be that boss who took their first step

Only to watch other people follow their lead

This is wonderful and always the ultimate satsifaction

When one person conquers all their fears

Now looking what they have done in only a short time

Truely a great move any chess player would approve

      Carolina muscle you do so much every day. You have found ways to make effective changes in your life.Kudos to you.I on the other hand start to many projects and finish only a few. Seasoning You and me both.Each time you learn one more thing please share it with me.I will do the same.I like the safe zone.Play it safe you have less struggle and competition.

      hi this was good. i enjoyed it. Work is a bit scary, came home and the new people who come out to inspect have been in. It was not a good, home and i knew it would improve or close. Thankfully i missed all the trouble but things there they are certainly a changing. Let's hope for the better. I decided i would re assess everything on my return from America. I am waiting to see will the place be open or not, will keep you informed. Still love the old folk tho

      You inspired me to write this one. I have so much trouble with all my thoughts in the past as well as present day.I like to follow someone elses lead right or wrong.I need time to understand the feelings I have and want to share.Thanks again for being a friend.

      Oh this poem was the best yet, I loved it and was inspired and felt a feeling of joy and a need to move forward to grow and expand into something different, something better, I want to read more of this is is it, you have found the secret, but stay on the middle road, not to far to the left or too far to the right, the middle will take you to your dream. Thumbs up
