To Reach to withhold

To Reach to withhold

A Poem by ByJ.T.Rogers

life is a stands of whom, now and later.


To reach, to withhold,

to stay, or To go

Life is a stands of whom you obey.

Who you will become,

and who you are today

Believe or not, means everything.

What you think 

becomes your Being

Where do your thoughts come from?

What are you allowing yourself to be influenced by?

Is it what you want to be?

Where did you get that desire,

The desire to be who you are,

The desire of what you want to be?

Will you be happy?

Are you happy now?

A choice out of anger is always regretted

But a choice out of love

Becomes a life worth living.

Author's Note

We fight ourselves everyday trying to reach out to what we want but a part of us struggles to let us do it. like getting out of bed in the morning.
