I Choose

I choose happiness
the road less traveled
where the grass is greener
and the flowers bloom wild

I choose joy
in the little things
because these are usually
much bigger when near

I choose peace
in all that surrounds
to give more than I take
to make the world better

I choose love
to friend or stranger
to give big
and perhaps receive

I choose faith
when times seem dark
to find that glint of light
in a cloud of grey

I choose hope
because without it
there is little chance
for a brighter day
