Choose Now

Can you count all the times
you hesitated, unsure, afraid
to make that choice, that precious choice?

Can you count all the tears
you shed, regretful, resentful, angry
that you did not raise your voice?

Can you count all the years
you lost, delaying, denying
yourself the permission to choose?

Can you count all the crimes
you committed upon your conscience
because others would have had too much to loose?

Can you count all the opportunities
you can create to fulfil yourself finally?
then choose now beloved, and do so with haste!

Choose now, to stand or fall,
Choose now, to fight or crawl,
Choose now, to smile or cry,
Choose now, to place your priorities high.
