Where we have been before
The past has gone away
Where will we go from here
We decide every day

It’s all about choices
The path that we each take
Determined by every
Decisions that we make

We each can choose to be
Soothing or more violent
Doctor or prisoner
Benefit or detriment

Sometimes it’s so easy
To lead ourselves astray
Sometimes it’s very hard
To find a better way

Each step makes a difference
So mind its direction
Choose the straight and narrow
And strive for perfection


  1. So true. What you feed your mind gives you your reality. You can live in a scary war zone in your mind or nirvana and the experience of life is vastly different from defensive to open and receptive.

  2. We can't always choose what happens to us, but we can choose how to deal with it and how we deal with it is what creates the real experience -- for good or for bad. Wishing you and your family a beautiful, wonderful and very Merry Christmas, Eric!


  3. Great poem....your thoughtful words resonate with me- Have a great holiday and happy new year!


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
