Treasure Island

Choose


I choose to express myself
You choose to suppress me
I choose to love myself
You choose to hate me
I choose to beautify myself
You choose to distort me
I choose to encourage myself
You choose to discourage me
I choose to energize myself
You choose to exhaust me
I choose to dedicate me
You choose to misuse me
I choose to defend me
You choose to battle me
I choose to save me
You choose to kill me
