Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

I could

12 April 2013

I could

 

I could easily drown in self-pity,

I choose not to.

I could descend into depression’s lair,

I choose not to.

I could cry for what’s been taken away,

I choose not to.

I could become bitter, hateful, or mean,

I choose not to.

I could try to hurt you as you’ve hurt me,

I choose not to.

I could despise you for letting me love,

I choose not to.

I could hope you never find someone else,

I choose not to.

I could pray to God, that He’d change your mind,

I choose not to.

I could stop loving you as you have me,

I choose not to.

Perhaps I could choose to love again, but

I choose not to.
