CHOOSE YOU

There are many instances love turns sour
Spreading through all corners of head and heart a sore
…always pushed to the fore
I believe no rat should live with a cat
Because in famine, one will use the other for sacrifice
We all know who will lose

II
In a situation where you have to sacrifice you
…for a partner’s choices
Choose you
Because your choices
…no matter how bad
Will, like a breathing in and out,
…gift you the exhilaration of a trying

III
No matter the bait one promises for your fate
Choose you
Don’t live loose and think your survival depends on subleting your happiness
Your lonely fears, like temporary rain, will vaporize
…leaving you fearless and determined
If you choose yourself

IV
Don’t lose yourself
No man can make and unmake another
If the other gives him no chance
It is the anthill which has many holes
…which faces the pressure of uninvited visitors
So choose you

V
You’re enough
…so long as you live with your completeness intact
You’re enough
…so long as you live with your dignity intact
You’re enough
…so long as you choose you
Then you won’t lose you in a noose of pleasing another
So choose you
…even in a sentimental overhaul
You matter more than a half baked pleasure

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
