I choose

Hello beautiful people. I came across a poem book (songs of life) written by kudo Eresia-Eke published in 2001. I know it’s old but, I saw two in particular that I fell in love with. I’m going to share one of the two I really loved with you.  Kindly read and share. I am gradually working my way back Mateyscott blog. So please, don’t be a stranger to the blog.

I choose.

There is wailing in the land

There is the clatter of gnashing teeth

Convulsing in the winter of want

There is the rumbling of the grumbling ones.

But I choose

I choose the laughter of life

I choose the whistle of the wind

I choose the music of the crickets

I choose the violin in silence

I choose the happy moments of life

I choose

*

There is hunger in the anger

There is anger in the thunder

There is slaughter in their slander

But I choose

I choose the chuckle of my boy

I choose the giggle of my girl

I choose the happy moments of life

I choose

*

There is dirt in the land

There is stench in the church

There is corpse in the corner

There is garbage in the gutter

But I choose

I choose the sparkle of the stars

I choose the aura of the rainbow

I choose the smile of the new born

I choose the happy things of life

I choose

*

There is death in the dungeon

There is blood in their sword

There is fart in their fan

There is pain in their power

But I choose

I choose the humble things of life

I choose to watch the flowing river

I choose to see the break in the dawn

I choose a play in the sand

I choose the happy things of life

I choose

*

There is jostling in the office

There is pushing for power

There is backbiting and back-stabbing

But I choose

I choose the sweetness of service

I choose to tell children stories

I choose the happy things of life

I choose.

What I really took from the poem is that, LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT. Things might not be working out so well right now, but I believe we are strong enough to live through it and come out stronger than we might have been. The thing is so many things will come at you and try to break your spirit. So many things I tell you people, but I will keep standing because I know HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. WE WILL BE JUST FINE LOVES! No matter what, there is a light at the end of this very dark tunnel and we will be just fine.

So choose. Choose to focus on the things that still bring unrehearsed smile to your faces. Choose to still keep putting one foot in front of the other. Choose to still believe in yourself and your future.

I truly love you all. Remain awesome 🙂
