A Heartfelt Choice

Filed under: Poetry — Tags: , , , , , — migueltio @ 4:52 pm

A choice was made

based on a voice

to make that very choice

that was burning within me

way down

deep inside.

That voice kept calling

to me as a fire that would not

for that matter could not

ever fathom its way

out of me

from within.

But like the blazes

in California, even the most

overwhelming over-burning

fire can change its course

with a different focus

from its source.

What is one minute

the most passionate priority

can change in the most rapid

flash of only the most brief light

making something new

more important.

Being there for family has

to take priority over

being in a great place to

only MAYBE see a great face

who with his

great voice

would tell me to make

the very same

changing

choice.

-Miguel
