The Choice is Yours, or, Ch-Ch-Changes

Make no mistake about it—

We are, collectively, at a crossroads,

one which clearly, sharply,

and without suffering lightly

any more of the same ol same ol bullshit

is asking us as individuals—

Are you going to remain

in blame, shame and victim mode,

or move into the new next phase

of self-discovery and empowerment?

This is old school and old soul education

with each and every one of us, none excluded,

enrolled as students,

and no doubt

paradigm shifting

can kick your ass swift and hard,

but at the molten core it all,

Love, as a force and not a shove,

is compelling us to shed

and become who we now choose

to become.
