  • Decisions

    I could make the
    Decision to lie down
    My weary head and
    Feel disconsolate

    On my bed
    Crying to all
    I‘m in pain
    And never will
    Get up again.

    one day I made
    the decision
    that life need
    not be like this.

    I can move in
    beauty around
    the loch and listen
    to bird song
    as swallows
    sail aloft; and
    watch brown, reds
    and yellow leaves
    floating down from
    trees and celebrate
    all that makes me
    want to dance and be
    happy to be me.
