The words 'you always have a choice'

Are used too often,

Usually without thought.

The truth is,

There's not always a choice,

There's no better option.

The thought of a choice

Is swallowed,


By hopelessness.

There is always though thought of

The only choice,

The temptation,

Of the only way out.

I rejected the thought

Of any other choice.

I wasn't worth giving another choice,

Another chance.

But you are

That choice

That chance.

For some reason,

I was lucky enough to meet you,

To be with you,

And that

Is my final choice.
