Choices we make ~ when all's at stake.

The world's our oyster they say - but is it always that way
when deep down inside we'd rather be -
down on the farm with the lads or better still - in good company!

Are our choices for ourselves, for friends or for family?

We weigh up the pros and the cons - in any situation
take up the tabs on the outcome of those choices - a variation.

But life is the balance of holding on and letting go
a condition we are programmed to know!

Make these 'choices' or pay the consequences - later on.
What is life for if not for wiping out regrets
be they for odds, evens  ~ we place our bets!

Have oft thought that 'home' would be in your arms
watching the moonlight, counting stars  .
Somewhere deep inside of me 
I would feel our passions rise ~ enviably 
but sadly it is not in your demise.

My 'friend' I always knew that the 'choices' 
 we make puts us in the dark >>>
We are bound to follow the mind - not the heart 
       a fact so sad, so stark!

Author Notes

Our lives are 'fashioned' by the choices we sometimes 'have' to make. Self sacrificing though it be it works out for the best ( Or does it?)

Something to Ponder
I have always found it difficult to make choices, since I have an uncanny ability to foresee, the repercussions of each alternative, and how A leads to B leads to C!
Great food for thought!

Thank you so much for a meaningful review, for being so generous with points and stars.

Penning about our many choices in life dear kitty.. I agree, at times, perhaps sacrificing, but many times sooo worth it.. I always thank God for unanswered prayers.. this is a lovely look at this condition of the hguman experience. SL! Caro

Life Has Many Choices,,,,
Interesting piece, Kitty! More than offen things just dont go our way, so yes we have choices we must make. Everyone has them, some do better than others, some have it easy, some have no luck at all, but we continue to try and try again, hoping one day we'll get it right. Our lively everyday challenges begin at an early age, the older, the wiser we get the easier it should be, but life just cant be that easy. Sometime mind must win over heart and sometimes heart must win over mind, sometimes neither win. I've been in one of those situations once or twice. I continue to ponder things I failed or could not solve or fix and it still hurts, but theres nothing I can do still to this day. Anyway,,,dont let things get to you where theres is no return.

Once again, your incredible talent fills many minds with wonderment. Your poetic choices have been great, keep up the great work. SL!! ~Andy

I've adopted the attitude that wisely Yu Jin as a four year old saw me sad quoted, "Don't worry. Be happy!" Out of the mouth of babes eh! Thank you 'Matey' for this meaningful review. Much appreciated. Your generosity is awesome. Thanks!  You are a !

The choices we make in life may not define us, they reshape our lives. And yes, they make or mar our lives. Choices are hard to make, if we must live well, we must make good choices. Beautifully penned. SL to u Kitty

Hi Matt! Good to see you round this corner. We sometimes make bad ones but obviously learn from mistakes in order to live a more fulfilling life. Your generosity is awesome! Thanks.

interesting work
Hi kitty, enjoyed reading your poem. Very interesting take on life. Yes we all have to constantly make choices in our life's, regrettably some are wrong, some are forces and some prove to be what makes us who we are. Nice job dear friend. This is the first poetry I have read for five months. It feels very strange being here, but I will get used to it once more and built up my confidence. Take care lol, from D

Hi "D" welcome on board one more! Glad you have chosen one of mine as your first read. Writing is like riding a bicycle - hop on the saddle and you are on your way!. Thanks for 'gifting me and for a lovely review. The road/ pen is yours....

and so tough, and so painful sometimes... when the heart wants, and the mind say it is wrong, You end Your poem with the fact and reality that it seems the one to work in life, not like all the times, I follow my heart more than my mind I guess... and I can't do anything if I didn't have the feeling of it, I believe the best think is to keep the balance, I believe in my sense and intuition, but I still have the doubts, very good write my dear friend, You always find something from life to write about, Thank You so much.

Wishing You a great week ahead*

Nice of you to drop by little butterfly ..bearing 'gifts and leaving wonderful words on my page. We make 'choices' and later have regrets but that is part of living eh! Edith Piaff said 'No regrets!' What can we do but be accepting/grateful for our many experiences be they good or bad. It's called living! Do enjoy the coming week!

And this is for each soul to tally the board as they grow old the question as old as man told in a very modern style well penned kitty who really knows

We sometimes think that the choices we make are the right ones - but for whom? Thanks for visiting em with a lovely review. As life goes on we wonder....
