Choices Now or Never
The game of life is ours to play,
all we are given, is just today.
Some whinge, some cry about times gone by,
some even wish that they could really die.
There are also others that I do know,
that keep on dreaming – on tomorrow.
You see, these people I don’t understand,
why don’t they live this life at hand.
The opportunity presented is plain to see,
I can be who ever I choose to be.
So why choose to be shy, so fearful or scared,
when I can be the one who need not be dared.
There is no dilemma that I can see,
I just need to choose who… I plan to be.
To take up the challenge, and live to the full,
to stop whinging and whining and talking the bull.
So as you sit and listen to me,
what will your decision…on this moment be.
To live in the now, this moment so free,
or go back to the past, and struggle so hopelessly.
I say live! live life, as full as can be,
Because one day soon, very dead we will be.
Choose… choose quick – as this moment is gone.
Open your heart and choose to live on.
(Tony Dovale 1996)
