The Choice is Yours

In everyone’s life a little rain must fall.
The choice is yours; will you stand strong or crawl?

At times the wind howls; whistlin’ through the cracks. The choice is yours; will you consider it noise to your ears or music to relax?

When times seem hard with days and nights long; relish in them, they’re what makes you strong.

The choice is yours no matter how rough. It’s truly these things that make one tough.

Will you cry in the rain and shiver in the wind?
Will you sing in the rain and dance with the wind?

The choice is yours!
byJody Sullivan

rain

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
it's about learning to sing in the rain and dance with the wind.





I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five
I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm restless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette
And what it all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign
I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm hard but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chickenshit
I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano
And what it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab

Trials exist for our own learning,
If we try to quit, we are losing;
Life is a choice of how we're doing,
How can we move on if we keep on failing?
Attitude is what we're having,
Through thick and thin, who's counting?
It's better to have optimistic thinking
Than make yourself ugly for plain sulking.

:D As I was going around your blog due to OWOH, I can't help but notice your poem...so I responded... :) What I wrote above is written just for commenting on your lovely poem.
