Choices

There is always a choice,
Red pill or blue pill,
Left or right, right or wrong.

Is it the right choice?
Perhaps you thought it was the only choice,
Or maybe you will never know.

Sometimes we get a compass,
A litmus test result,
Or a locked door.

The doors, the choices,
They will never cease.
But, would you want them to?

Chose wisely,
Live by faith,
Leave the rest to God.

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.”
Randy Pausch

“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
Viktor Frankl

  1. Fine post! “Live by faith, leave the rest to God.”

  2. I enjoy your poetry… I was thumbing through the philosophy tag when I noticed this…philisophical write (~_~)

    I’ve been meaning to ask you (but have been busy through the holiday weekend) if I could post your story of the blind horse on my blog/ add it to my collection of enlightening tales with a finger point to where I read it? bows (~_~) humble

    I have only read two stories at wordpress that I want to add to my collection of wisdom tales and yours is one of them.

  3. Yes, indeed, there is ALWAYS a choice. So glad you included that Victor Frankl story from the concentration camp. We can always choose our attitude. I am reminded, also, of Solzhynitsyn (sp?) in the Gulag Archipelago, in his wooden box he could not not stand up in reciting to himself memorized portions of Holy Scripture. His SOUL was standing tall!
