There’s alway always always a choice & and I choose life.
Not because my future is shiny but because I value my strife.
Not love it or like it or even look forward to it but strife has value.
It’s the ebb without which there would be no flow through.
Life’s turning wheel has fortune & misfortune that switches like the tides.
Accepting the fact of this is the sustaining light in which life can be taken in strides.
It doesn’t make it easy, just easier to handle, due to understanding.
You’re promised only the scant knowledge that life will inflict good & bad things.
That’s the way it is & everyone knows it consciously or unconsciously.
Cognizance of this is what allows me to always see the paths that are open to me.
There isn’t ever nowhere to go…take it from someone who once lost their way.
So when your feeling blue & trapped & lost in the woods pull out your moral compass & give it a day.
