The choices we make along the way
Of this path that we call life
Can bring us moments of ultimate joy
Or moments of great strife.
Sometimes we’re not sure which choice to make
And we study and think profoundly,
It’s then it’s best to follow our gut
So we can, at least, sleep soundly.
Sometimes we really do know
Which choice is best for us
But desire for instant gratification
Throws consequence under the bus.
We’ll all make mistakes and bad choices
As we stumble along our way
But we can’t let them get the better of us
Only pray for better choices next day.
Facing the consequences isn’t easy
But it wasn’t promised it would be
So forgive yourself and do what you can
No matter the cost, no matter the fee.
