Choices

WHEN I AWAKE
FROM MY NIGHTS SLEEP
I CHOOSE TO SMILE
FROWN OR CREEP
I CHOOSE MY BREAKFAST
WHAT SHALL I EAT
BACON, EGGS OR CHEESY GRITS
MAYBE JUST OATMEAL MADE OF WHOLE WHEAT
I CHOOSE MY CLOTHES
AND WHAT SHOES TO WEAR
NOT THAT IT MATTERS
CAUSE I ONLY OWN ONE PAIR
SHOULD I DRIVE IN THE FAST LANE
OR JUST GO REAL SLOW
LOCK THE TOP LOCK
OR JUST SHUT THE FRONT DOOR
EVERY MINUTE OF OUR LIFE
WE MAKE SOME KIND OF CHOICE
WHICH REPRESENT OURSELVES
IN SPIRIT AND VOICE
THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES
A BILLION CHOICES WE WILL MAKE
SOME WILL SHOW US AS TRUE
SOME WILL SHOW US AS FAKE
THE CHOICES WE MAKE
CAN BE GOOD OR BAD
SO STAND BY YOUR CHOICE
AND NEVER BE SAD
BECAUSE IT’S NOT ABOUT OUR CHOICES
BUT THE LESSONS WE LEARN
BECAUSE LIFE IS A TEST
FROM THE DAY WE ARE BORN
STAND BY YOUR CHOICES
AND DON’T STOP TO REFLECT
BECAUSE AS FAR AS I KNOW
ONLY GOD IS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR CHOICES IN LIFE, ALWAYS BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE.
THERE IS ONLY ONE OF YOU IN THIS WORLD, WHICH MAKES YOU SPECIAL!!!!!!!!!!!
