Choices (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

The theme for this week's O.S.I. prompt is choices.

I’d heed not to gravity
The anchor that weighs me
And take no thought of time
The internal clock that wakes me
I care not for sweeten words
Idle promises swim down a creek
My choice is sure and firm
In the quiet assurance of destiny

I admire you for having made right choices...I seldom make the right ones, so i suffer from my failures!

I love your take dear! :)

There is so much strength in this! Written directly from your gut...

Geraldine said...

Sounds like you have things figured out. What a good feeling this is, when we can feel good and confident about out choices!

Oh, WG! Isn't your poet/writer tempted just a little to be a rolling stone? I would be more of that stone than that your words portray.

It is wonderful writing; my favorite line is,
"My choice is sure and firm" which even rolling stones can say once they get to where they land (roll).
