Pain and suffering are so very often
The result of our own choices
We choose death not life
In so many circumstances coming our way daily

How very important it is
To choose life in all we do
To listen to that small still voice
Wanting to lead us in paths of righteousness

So simple it can be
Trust over lies
Build up over break down
Life over death

Dear child please choose life
In all you do
With all you say
When you sit, when you rise
