My Choice

Poem By Emily Angel

Sitting within the comforts
My home offered me,
I wondered if I really
Ought to take this chance.

Life seemed brilliant
And safe as usual
Yet my heart yearned
To stand up for
What I truly believe in.

My mind pointed out
How comfortable I could
Live my life if I chose,
Tempting me to stay
Here in my comfort zone.

Yet the overwhelming pressure
My heart pressed me with
Made me stand to take risk

I took my steps
With all my strength.
I had to walk out
Into the darkest night.

I was out in the cold,
Dark and lonely world
All by myself.

The night held its terrors
For every traveler and
I was no exception.

Fear gripped me and
Shook me inside out.
Yet I knew I had to move on.

And I'm still, to this day,
Walking in the dark night
Looking for that light
Which will guide me
to my destiny.

What horrors wait for me
I care not for I've made
A choice that can't be reversed.

nice one keep e fire burning....what a brilliant poem..excellent
I like how you broke it down. Felt a good build up too it, definitely a powerful read: ]
choices are the foundation of this very empire we call life some are easier than other and some we with we never made but in the end they all contribute to making us a better person later in life. nice one Emily
I like people who make bold choices, following their ideals and beliefs. As long as we consciously try to execute our bold plans with the grace of Ghandi, the wisdom of Martin Luther King Jr. and the love of a mother, we will never go wrong. Very well written, truly admiring what is expressed in the poem.
Nice angle to look at the life. A wise share us always these ideas to make our life at least to a positive approach of living. This poem touches the height when it begins to search the light of destiny through the dark. Carry on....

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,


I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
