Choice

Friend

Should I suffer?
Should I cry?
Should I pity?
Should I even try
to lend a hand to another
who’s in need
when I see others don’t care.

Should I mind?
Should I find
a way out
of being someone
that gives
a helping hand;
when I see others just up and gone.

What must I do?
What must you think
of me
if I stay indifferent;
If I just watch
and stand there
feeling sorry, doing nothing?

My Best Friend says:
Do what you must
not as you please.
Many may not bother
but you do my dear sister.
Just do what you can
each day is grand.

Heed, pay attention.
Life is hard for a lot of nations.
Suffer not we like to be
but suffering is life’s reality.
Welcome and accept with your whole heart
and pray your faith does not depart
with the choice to care on which you’ll embark.

Should I stay then on my choice?
Am I strong enough to hoist
up my will, and follow the narrow path
where others dare not go.
It’s tough, it’s hard;
I’m weak, I’m alone, and I’m tired.
Should I proceed with this journey
where I’m talked about by the majority?

But surprisingly my Friend,
why amidst all these
I’m still happy?

That’s your reward dear sister.
It may taste bitter;
but, in the end you’ll see
when you will be with Me
you will be free
of suffering, this is My reality.

You’ve dared to care
you’ve started to share
with my brother and my sister.
You chose to, of that I’m certain.
You’ve done a 180-degree turn
from a life wasted
and has now been uplifted.

I’ve been with you then,
I’m still with you now.
My dear sister
heed the Word
move forward
pray constantly;
strive to be happy!

God is good…All the Time!!!
