Choices – a poem


Choices – a poem

by Fran Watson

You can do and you can be
whatever you want.
You have the power,
and the right,
to make the changes.

There are many choices to be made
as daily life goes by.
There are changes in our world
and choices in our lives.
There are those who come
and those who go.
There are those who enrich,
and those who drain.
There are thoughts
which improves our daily grind,
and there are thoughts
that depress us and bring us down.

Every chance meeting,
every friendship,
every love,
every choice we make,
changes us inside and out
in ways we neither see
nor notice
until sometime later.

All of a sudden we encounter
an old circumstance,
but we handle it in a new way
a better way.
The choices and the changes we made
have caused us to grow,
to improve,
and we can move on

You have one life to live,
don’t let it count for naught.
You have too much to give,
Choose to give it!



By Fran Watson

Growing hurts sometimes;

saying goodbye to friends,

to things you’ve known and done

to things, you wanted to do.


Growing heals sometimes

the shattered dreams and hopes

of a life you once knew

leading you to a new knowledge of yourself.


Growing up is fun sometimes

meeting new friends

learning new things

making changes that feel good and moving on.


Growing is necessary always.

Without change there is stagnation

death instead of life.

To choose to live is to choose to grow.
