Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Choose Stand Tall


Who will stand tall
at appointed trashing table
chosen accounting time?

Who are the strong ones?
I am inherently far stronger
than quitters can choose to be.

I am strong enough to choose.
How I will choose to live.
How I will choose to die.

    Do we have the choices? some people say yes, others may not know the meaning for the choice when they are traveling in the lonely route of insecurity and insufficiency! Nice poem Terence! (Report) Reply
