“Choice!”

 

“Choice!”

off-hand a pleasant word

hearing it

makes you think you might get to pick

of the best of whats been given

like choosing between fireplace or blanket

or both

 

but you hold that word like a sword

protection against all the abuses

anyone has ever hurled

against anyone else

weaponizing the word

you bind as a chain

on those whom you claim deny your right

to choose

 

anything but death

 

hypocritically denying them their own right

to choose

 

anything but death

 

for what other reason would you curse

each time someone chooses

 

anything but death

 

death tells you its the only option

but it doesnt have to be that way

death does not have to rule over you

death does not have to be your only choice

death does not have to be your choice at all

a greater choice than death surrounds you

 

Life!

 

theirs

 

yours
