bitter sweet choices

Updated on April 8, 2010



Choices are made each day

what to wear and what face to display

where to go or does it matter?

stopping here or make our way?

Helping others or watching them fail

being happy to no avail

sweet bitterness calls somes name

hatred fills them just the same

watching for signs of eternal life

will be missed if focused on strife

leaving many clues

you will miss and you will lose

If only for a day you choose

to feel happy and not blue

only then you can see

with your heart

now you choose

      Very nicely written. We do indeed make our choices, including how we feel. If we choose to look at things from a positive perspective, we will indeed see things with our heart.

      Very true! Choices can make or break us! George Jones has a song called "Choices" you should check it out, this hub brought it to my mind...Thanks for the good hub!
