A Poem by JD Jessop

We all have these choices daily to make




We can’t always Choose to Win or to Loose

We cannot Choose the Rain


We cannot Choose….the Sun Will Rise

But we Choose how we will Face the Day


Sometimes we don’t Choose the Road we are on

Sometimes we can’t Choose who Stays and who’s Gone


But we Choose how we will Carry On

So Choose your Sadness or Choose your Song


Deep Down we know what’s Wrong and what’s Right

So Choose the Dark or Choose the Light


Choose the Rock or Choose the Sand

Determine the Place you wish to Stand


Choose Faith, Hope & Charity or Choose Despair

Choose to Live or Choose to Cry

Choose the moment If, When and How to say Goodbye

Choose to Forgive or Choose to Deny


Choose only Grey or Choose some Color

It’s really not six and one half dozen of the other


Choose your Friends ... use Discretion

Choose to be Blind or to Trust Intuition


Choose your Freedom or choose your Prison

Your Reality is the one You Choose to live in


Choose to Fight or Choose to Expire

Choose to be Truthful or Choose to be a Liar


Choose to Smile or Choose to Frown

Choose to look Up or Choose to look Down

Do you see half full? Or see you half empty?

From Consequence of Perspective there is no Exemption

Fill Life with Hope or Fill Life with Sorrow 

Choose Today my Friend, Choose again Tomorrow

The sum of your existence is the sum of your Choices

The Choices are yours to make
