When I chose

I feel stuck, I cannot leave

From this place, I cannot cleave

All my ties, there is much at stake

For myself and my family’s sake

I am forced to be here, though

I just want to break free and go

To another place, get a fresh start

To rejuvenate my mind and heart

The greater my desire to leave, the more

Trapped I feel, than ever before


To choose the life I want, I am free

So let me rephrase this differently

Despite all the flaws in this place

I choose to stay, I am ready to face

The challenges that exist here

I uphold my decision without fear..


From being a hapless victim of circumstance

To feeling empowered to choose my stance

Nothing has changed but my conscious thought

That it’s my choice, an imposition on me it is not
