Choices

Hillside in Seaside Oregon

Choices
in every moment, choices.
Right, left,
up, down,
forwards, backwards.
Choose time with loved ones
or screen time.
Choose the healthy food
or that yummy treat
you love so much.
Choose to make a delicious dinner
or make it something simple
or grab take-out.
Choose the step that
takes you closer to your goal
or just take the day off.
Choose to be loving and gentle
or get angry over that
little thing,
the thing you won't
really care about
twenty years from now.
Choices,
always choices.
