Today is a new beginning

A moment you can choose

To define who you are.

Or  recreate yourself

Educate yourself

Learn to love again

Or fall in love

With the same person

You have been with

For years.

You can rip your shirt off

And tell everyone

That ever got in your way

To try it again.

Or, you may lay your sword down

Decide the fight isn’t worth it anymore

And walk away.

To stay with the one

That makes you miserable

Or be with the one you love.

Like a babies first breath

Or the first time they walk

You may choose to carry on

Or not to.

Today you make that choice.
