The Heart Makes A Choice


The day began with birds singing

A wakeup melody of praise.

I joined them in spirit

With words of my own

Then proceeded on with my day.


I made coffee

And fed my body

As my soul had been,

And smiled still.

There is turmoil all around me

And though I try

I cannot change it all

But I do not have to let it change me.

Sing  . . .

Smile . . .

Praise . .  .

I choose joy.
