Choices by Brendan Rooney

1 min read

Have you ever thought about who will come after you when your gone 
Your soul purged of all sin 
Purity in full force getting rid of the guilt bound to your heart 
Have you ever thought about how your kids will grow and blossom like flowers
Budding and thriving with potential 
Knowing they carry your genes  
Have you ever thought about family 
Blood or non 
Have you ever thought about the bonds with friends 
Do you wonder if your friends will leave 
If your heart starts to decay 
If your tongue oozes lies 
Have you ever wondered about the connection of morality 
Between those closest and chained to your heart 
Have you ever strived to leave an impactful legacy when you depart this prism of reality 
Have you thought about the steps you took to achieve everything possible
Have you ever thought about the meaning of life 
Is it predetermined 
Or 
Is it tangible 
Manipulated by our actions and thoughts of sense 
Are you driven by a spirit 
Or
Are you bound by choices
