My Choices

by Acacia   Feb 9, 2021

Life is a gamble
Risks and all
I don't take orders
I barely take suggestions
And yet,
They refuse to leave me be
"Life is full of opportunities"
They say
Do this,
Do that,
No time to rest
Urging me constantly
But I know how to live
And I want my own choices
To be the ones that matter

*based on Mother to Son by Langston Hughes
