A series of choices

A series of choices is what shapes a 
life.
Some lead to joy, others to strife.
They come in all sizes, both big and 
small.
Some lift us up and some make us 
fall.
Our choices affect us, but so often 
others
Strangers and friends, family and 
lovers.
Take care that your choices are 
honest and pure.
In every choice, try to be sure.
Choices revealed in actions and 
deeds.
They're nestled in wants, desires 
and needs.
What we say, what we don't.
What we will, what we won't.
We are judged by our choices, for 
good or for bad.
Living with memories, happy and 
sad.
Choices are rarely ever rehearsed.
Once they are made, seldom 
reversed.
Who we are at the core can be 
shown by a choice.
I hope that in yours, you'll always 
rejoice
