There Is Truth In Choice

There Is Truth In Choice

A Poem by Lalli

I choose to use my words in an attempt to mend a broken heart and make it whole again

I will lend a listening ear so your damaged spirit can be cleansed with your tears

Releasing pain and fear

 

I will advise you through truth

Truth like, burdens don’t have to be carried

You choose too

And even if your body is broken and bruised understand it’s impossible to take away your strength because you are a power source

 

You are light, attracting moths from the darkness 

And no matter how annoying they may seem have faith that you provide guidance but be humble in knowing many are here to guide you too

 

Your ancestors are watching so give the stars something to smile about

 

Don’t hide behind the whites of your eyes 

Mesmerize the world with the brilliance of your iris 

 

Because your skin was tailored for your soul so there’s no reason you can't feel comfortable in the craftsmanship of the almighty

Be you and be proud

 

The fortune inside the cookie reads

"Be true to yourself, worry not the matter of opinion other than the opinion worth placing value too, you choose"

 

You choose to search for the meaning in truth

You choose to search deeper for the identity of you

You choose

You choose to see the pain that you've never let go that needs to be released 

You choose the view of mental fortitude

And you choose to discipline your mind and build intensity into your character 

 

And once you realize…you have the power to choose 

 

Then I encourage you to infect the world

Infect the world with joy by exposing the beautiful pearls behind your lips

The happiness of a smile is beyond contagious and we all know this world is diagnosed with a sickness so,

Even if it temporarily uplifts a depressed spirit

Even if it ends up just a quick fix at least we are being proactive towards a remedy

Otherwise, we are sleepwalkers

Awake, but never really conscious

Breathing, without gratitude of the miracle in our breath

Apocalyptic zombies, existing…but never really living

 

If the absence of light is darkness

What is the absence of love?

 

Loneliness?

 

Emptiness?

 

Waiting to be filled

But love is not a prescription

And In order for it to manifest into our existence we must show love to ourselves first

 

You have to start with yourself

Before you can be the strength, for someone else
