My Choice

Good Morning All!  My mind is quite scattered so I am suprised I was able to write this in 5 mins...I wanted to write something but had planned on some ramblings today...This poem reflects where my mind is at right now.  I am quite focused on what has to be done...

My Choice

Mind scattered
Disregarding things that once mattered
Finding new direction
Not allowing my mind to be mislead by affection
Choosing my destiny
Maintaining my sanity
Not allowing life to affect my mood
Feelings no longer seclude
Depression no longer has control
Taking back what life has stole
Regaining my own voice
Happiness is my choice

Hi JStar,

I agree with your sentiments. We have to chose to be happy. Powerful words and expression here.

I really like this poem. I struggle with chronic pain/depression so I can relate so well. Good for you taking control and having this great attitude!
