We Chose

Audio Poetry Reading: We Chose
This is not how the story was suppose to go.
You and me were meant to be fighters, the heroes.
But here we are the underdogs
It seems to me
We didn't even come close.


How did it come to this?
How did we lose our faith?
How did we fall off course?

My God, we chose.


We chose to fall,
We chose to stray
The twisted path.

We chose to stay
In the hardest place,
We chose to fall from grace.


But if we chose the fall,
We can choose the rise.
If we chose despair,
We can choose the hope.


Ten years from now, let us rendezvous 
And bare to each other, soul to soul.
May we say with joy, 
May we say with pride:
My God, we chose the hope.
