It's All Or Nothing


If I choose to love I will love wholly

If I choose to hate I will hate fully

If I choose to forgive I will forgive always

If I choose to be hurt I will hurt deeply

If I choose to lie I will lie openly

If I choose to be kind I will be kind knowingly


If my heart is broken I will mend it

If my courage is weak I will strengthen it

If my character is flawed I will change it

If my words are empty I will not speak it

    THANKS SARAH ~ In the 21st C ~ there is so much Hypocrisy and Falsehood ~ it's nice to find someone with inner resolve ~ a Lady who is a Lady of her WORD ! The areas you hilite in verse 1. are key to Life & Love: Love ~ Hate ~ Forgiveness ~ Hurt ~ Lying ~ Kindness we must be positive in these areas and not vacillate ! Being double-minded is weakness and leads to instability.
    In verse 2. you show great resolve to: Heal ~ Strengthen ~ Change ~ Keep silent ~ This again shows strength of character. Without resolve we perish ~ thanks for sharing ~ Yours BRIAN (UK)
