Choosing To Live

Poem By Elena Lempp

Feel the warmth of the sun shining on your face
Feel the wind playing softly with your hair
Hear the river streaming slowly
And sense the firm ground under your feet

Your life was not given to you to be thrown away
Do what you want and be happy
There is only one chance at life
Be sure not to waste it

So, hush, baby –there is no use in crying
The past is past
And future means to start anew
Only you decide what you want to do

Comments about Choosing To Live

Lovely, modern sentiment. Lovely restraint, brave and generous. Excellent piece.

When I look upon your face
I see it glowing like a fallen star
It is no wonder that you coat it in darkness
Your sparkling hair is flowing over your shoulders

In Darkness You Dwell

You cower in fear
In fear of the light
Oh fallen angel
How far have you gone


I feel like I have lost my way
I'm wandering about in darkness
No stars to guide me in the clouded sky
My steps are tentative
