A Matter of Choice

From the very beginning of life,
God allows us choice
And, it’s the fundamental gift
From which we weep or rejoice

And from this, I have chosen
To pursue each one of my dreams
Knowing only of probabilities,
Which are limitless, it seems

Through the conquering of each,
I learn a little more of me
And, find that I’m rehearsing
Parts of my life yet to be

Each dream begins with wondering
“Could it be this or that?”
Then manifest to wonders 
Of illusion mixed with fact

Wishing is stagnation and 
Dreaming is to do
And doing it with passion
Is the success of me and you.

***Dedicated to David Copperfield after one of his performances.

    This is quite amazing, and I agree. Life has two possibilities, facts already estasblished in the sacred heart, and total illusions, of the enmity mind's creation in this world, based on this world's ego. Thanks so very much for sharing this, it is comforting to know that another human being knows the truth. Sincerely, Kim, love, Moses
