"But first, baby, as you climb and count the stairs (and they total the same), did you, sometime or somewhere, have a different idea?
Is this, baby, what you were born to feel, and do, and be?"

Choose





Seeing you

in your prime,

when you had

a chance:

I want to tell you

that this is no accident.

Every crossroads

is as simple

as Madison vs. Milwaukee;

You can hate until it kills you,

or love until you die.

There is a difference.

  2. Powerful stuff. I've been at a crossroads and made the wrong choices but I think I'm testiment to the fact that you can get back and fix things. But yes, it took letting go of the anger and choosing to love myself instead.

    Powerful, powerful stuff Brent!

  3. Thanks Emm! Glad it rang true for you. Having taken a combination of different paths myself, I've found it to be true for me.
