3 Months of 2011- Choices Remain

Life in its Simplicity is Still Simply a Choice!

Roads we tread

Decisions we dread

Lies we tell
Glimpses of hell

Rivers we cross
Dreams we've lost

Mountains we climb
Those left behind
Paths we take
Choices we make 

A destination found
Simply heaven bound

The above photograph was taken on January 2, 2011 in the mountains where I frequently go to ride my mountain bike 
and to lose myself.  The bible tells us Jesus often went into the wilderness to pray and I find myself doing 
the same thing. I find that ideas for me are often birthed in the solitude and simplicity of nature.   ~Maleko

Update - Originally posted in January of 2011, one of my goals for the new year was to live my live deliberately and to be conscious of every choice.  Knowing that every choice for one thing means a choice against something else and nothing is left unchanged.   After three months, this simple fact remains unchanged and has borne itself out both positively and negatively in my life.  I encourage everyone to live your life on purpose, engage and always choose for the good against evil but and not allow the fear to rule our choices.  A reminder to all that you do have a choice and to choose life! ~Maleko  April 2011

Seriously, my WSDOT bro, one of the most beautiful and thought-provoking poems I've ever read. I'm blessed to know you even if you tell me to shut up. :)
