Choose That

do not choose the lesser life.
do you hear me.
do you hear me.
choose the life that is.
yours.
the life that is seducing your lungs.
that is dripping down your chin.

  1. “Do you want me to tell you something really subversive?
    Love IS everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.
    And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
    ~Erica Jong

  4. For me, this points to the people in my life, too. Choose the people who adore you, who fight for you, who light up when you meet.
