We Have a Choice

by Alanna

WE HAVE A CHOICE

Shut off the news

and choose beauty

Let a song well up in your throat

and fill the air

Read poetry, write poetry

Bask in books with happy endings

Shun violent movies, media

and enjoy laughter instead

Treat yourself to lovely music

Watch the birds & look for bees

Sleeping in flowers

Hug your dog, your cat, your partner

or anyone you love

Be hopeful

We have a choice.

  1. Alanna, thanks for the lovely smile, your words birth on my face! They are a wonderful selfless and pure blessing!!! Hugs my sister!

  2. These are lovely words. Thank you. I know I must be on guard though because silence is complicity.

  3. Reblogged this on The Militant Negro™.

  4. Yes, we have a choice but that choice can’t be closing our eyes and minds to reality.
