the mark of humanity
is we are always given choices
how we choose to act
how we use our voices

the determining factor
is how we seek to live
do we choose to surrender?
are we programmed to give?

surrendering to the guidance
that is intrinsic within
programmed experientially
from a heart that lives open

sometimes we feel
an absence that becomes a calling
seeking to fulfill it, wanting to feel our wholeness
by finding new choices that want installing

choosing to live
choosing to give
choosing to sieve
filtering out the unwanted
and choosing to forgive
ourselves and others
as we accept our journeys
and our learnings
from decision-making
