What I Choose

What I did not choose:

My birth

My parentage

My skin color

The place I was raised in

The language I grew up speaking


What I did choose:

My faith

My education

My future

My partner and helpmeet

My family

My home

My tribe

My dreams

My child


What I will continue to choose:

To hope

To believe

To listen

To hug

To encourage

To pray

To sing

To write

To smile

To dance

To learn

To support

To love
