Choices

To try, or not to try, that is the question.
No, do or do not, there is no try.°
Yet, I feel so hesitant about making a choice.
If you do not choose, you still have made a choice.*
My voice fails me; I no longer have words to speak.
Give your will a voice. Find strength within.
My will is weak. Strengthen me, master.
The Force will strengthen you.

G-d will strengthen you, my child.
Father, I feel so weak. Temptation abounds.
Let His will for you, be your own.
My voice falters, my words are diminished as I speak.
His words are greater than our words, my son.
I can hardly choose the right path, nor find my way.
The way is narrow, and the path is straight.
Then, I will try to make my way through the darkness.
If you try, then He will meet you halfway.

  1. A wonderful thoughtful and conflicted poem! To choose or not to choose … is still choosing!
    Well done. He will not meet you only half way…. He is with you all the way… through every shadow of death!
