Choose

Choose each day what you love
for that is all there is.
Practice being 
right where you are
in the midst of your life
for that is all there is.
Sweep the floors, pay the bills
earn the cash.
Be with the mundane and uninspiring
they need you right now.
And then, choose 
and choose again
to give yourself
wide open,
like a soaring eagle
on the edge of the sky,
to what is in your blood.
Until you are surprised
when perhaps one day
you find yourself 
in love.
And that is all there is.

  1. You sure know how to pierce the heart Shanee. This poem inspires awe so very beautifully.

  2. It was very blessing for me to reada your poem today. Thank you…I’m living the poem.

    • Thanks for taking the time to let me know, Napkin writer. I think perhaps my sole aim in sharing pieces like this is the hope my words might connect with someone out there and make a difference for them, just as so many pieces of writing do for me.
