Life's Hard Choices

By Bud Lemire

Life's choices are sometimes hard to make
Which one will it be, which one will you take
It's like choosing between a rock and a hard place
Which makes life so much harder for you to face

What do you do in a case like this
When it's life threatening and you can't dismiss
It's easier for someone not in your shoes
But when it's you, it's always bad news

Life gives us faith, so we can believe
In the right choices, in all we receive
To know our choices will turn out right
Because God has embraced us in his light

Loved ones guide us on the other side and here
Taking away our doubts, and diminishing our fear
Prayers and thoughts, give us the hope that we need
Then we are guided to where they will lead

Nobody truly knows what you've been through
How could they know, they sure aren't you
Believe in yourself, and call the Angels near
When you're making hard choices, so all will be clear

Author Note:

The hard choices we make in life aren't always easy.
They make us think, and many times we still aren't
sure. Yet, when we believe and have faith that we
will choose the right choice, or learn from the choices
we make. Of course when it is life threatening, it is
much harder. Draw the Angels near, and know that God
and your family friends here and in his kingdom will help
you through your hard choices. Listen, feel, and know
that your hard choices will soften. Easier coming from me,
