In Response to “Choices” by Nikki Giovanni

CHOICES

 

If my mental or physical restraint

limit my action

then my action

react or adapt

to my situation

I know things could be better

but it starts with me

 

if my dreams are my desire

and not my reality

but reality is the fuel

that maintains sanity

being grateful should be a merit

and I wear it with a smile

 

I want to travel

or rather elevate

but I’m stagnated

in a familiar space

the fork in the road

leads in a circle

but I understand

I have to utilize

the power of choice

 

the emotional mask I wear

hides the frustration and worry

because there’s no equilibrium

with happiness and humanity

so human beings learn to live in vain

with situations they can’t undo

and change the ones they can
