everyone has a choice
whether to continue on this path,
or take a turn to the right,
or forge a new path on the left,
or to take a complete U-turn,
and go back and make a fresh start
at one of the roads that made you curious
but you abandoned because you thought
you needed to stay on this road that everyone else took.
believe it or not, there is a choice.
but you are never going to get your chance at your choice
so long as you fail to believe that there is a choice.
there are no invisible chains restraining you;
nothing is stopping you from living your life to the fullest
other than your beliefs or lack thereof.
believe you can and you will!

We often have a choice but lack the courage to exercise that choice. We do not give ourselves the chance as we are fearful of taking the unknown road. Beautiful poem V. I needed this today.
It is a beautiful poem, Vinitha. And also presented so well in the image.
Cheers for all kind of choices we can make.
Lovely poem, Vinitha! Would be so nice that people will believe that they can.
But there are so many of them far away of these truth.
Thank you Vinitha and have a fine week ahead!
So true Vinitha! Our own lack of self-belief is what holds us back most of the time.
Beautifully penned Vinitha. Never giving up is the motto and we must constantly reconfigure our plans when they dont look feasible. Reinventing is the name of the game.
Lovely poem, Vini. So true – we really need to rewire our minds and get rid of all that restricts us from living a full and meaningful life!
Thank you for sharing such an inspiring poem, Vinitha! Self belief is so crucial to how we show up in our everyday life and this is one lesson that we all need to go through to realise how choices are always there for the things that we do or do not do.
Gotta believe in yourself at all cost.
That’s so true, Vinitha! It’s our belief in ourselves and our capabilities that can help us discover new paths and create a new life for ourselves.
