The Choices We Make©

There is nothing like the pressure of a friends words; of temptation

Telling you what to do to fit in

Or the feelings you have about wanting to have a baby

So you can feel as though someone loves you

The only problem is, you are only 15

Feeling all alone makes you look elsewhere for comfort

Or an ending that may be too final

 Stop, look around and listen real closely

To all that is already here

 There is love in your family and friends

Reach out and grab it

Open your eyes to the pain felt by those who made the wrong choices

Bringing children into the world with no money to ease them

or the pain of a family who lost a loved one who could no longer bare their pain

Look to see how open and free the future can be

But first realize for every bit of freedom comes some measure of responsibility

Life wasn’t meant to be easy, but can be as happy as you want it to be

Good things come if you are willing to wait for them
