Choosing Your Path

Choices
If i can’t do
what i want to do
then my job is to not
do what i don’t want
to do

It’s not the same thing
but it’s the best i can do

If i can’t have
what i want then
my job is to want
what i’ve got
and be satisfied
that at least there
is something more
to want

Since i can’t go
where i need
to go then i must go
where the signs point
through always understanding
parallel movement
isn’t lateral

When i can’t express
what i really feel
i practice feeling
what i can express
and none of it is equal
I know
but that’s why mankind
alone among the animals
learns to cry
