The Choices
Poet: William Arthur Ward


The choices we make each day of the week,
The paths that we take, the goals that we seek,
The kind of persons one day we will be
Is daily determined by you and me.

Each thought that we think, each word that we say
Affect our tomorrows in some strange way.
Each task that we finish, if it's well done,
Prepares us to tackle a bigger one.

For each of us has a talent or two,
A chance to make good on the jobs we do;
A measure of time to squander or use
Is given to us - it's our job to choose.
