Time to Choose…by Carl Gooch

Time to Choose
Whether you win or lose, it is time to choose
You’ve had your time, to make up your mind.
Can I pay the high price or is it just too steep?
I roll it over in my mind, answers I must find
It would be so nice, if I could get some sleep.
But they say it’s time, to start the daily grind.
Whether I win or lose, it’s time for me to choose
I have had a lot of time, to make up my mind.
Thoughts good and bad, yes, both have I had,
Thoughts rushing in and out, I want to shout.
Purging the bad, keeping what makes me glad,
Based on truth no doubt, is what it’s all about.
The struggle to find what’s real; that’s the deal,
To keep what is good, and live as you should.
It’s not about the way you feel, but what is real.
I ask, try if you would, to live in brotherhood.
Whether you win or lose, it is time to choose
You’ve had your time, to make up your mind.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
