I make choices every day

whether I am happy or sad

whether I win or lose

how I take it, how I make it.

I make those choices

from the second I open my eyes

to the moment I drift away

I determine how it all happens.

It's empowering and terrifying

all at the same time.

Am I really responsible for my life?

Am I really responsible for

my hopes, my dreams, my actions?

It doesn't happen overnight

putting these plans into motion.

But they take shape,

they find their legs,

they move forward when

they have their footing.

I just have to be patient -

that's a choice too.

Now it is my chance

to make the right choice.

Win or lose, at least

I make the choice.
