Itís Our Choice

 

Life is full of options,

So many ways to turn.

Fate and destiny embrace our path,

and sways our will to yearn.

 

As karma and kismet influence our choice,

Our will is the rudder upon this tide;

We can surf that wave with skill and passion,

or be overwhelmed by the force to abide.

 

Tyranny, fascism, dictatorship,

Enslave the body, not hope.

Hope is to what our will would do,

if we werenít enforced to cope.

 

Choice is the very seed of freedom;

Highest blessing of God to us;

The safeguard of humanity,

That makes us more than dust.

 

For dust we are,

and dust we shall become;

But now we have the choice to live,

and let this dust have fun.
