Determination

We're often chided and derided
for things that we've decided
but choices are like voices
heed the chorus that rejoices

when yesterday becomes today
tomorrow isn't far away
be confident and circumvent
the problems that you can't prevent

illusion and confusion
can be deadly in collusion
let your vision spurn derision
and defend your own decision.

This poem is absolutely superb. It actually appealed to me with its prayerful words of wisdom.

Best Wishes,

Only it's not that easy - and neither is writing like this, as I know only too well. Congratulations.
