Today is a day of bleh…I am feeling all kinds of things and this poem by the great Nikki Giovvani sums my mood up perfectly.

CHOICES

If i can’t do what i want to do then my job is to not do what i don’t want to do

It’s not the same thing but it’s the best i can do

If i can’t have what i want . . . then my job is to want what i’ve got and be satisfied that at least there is something more to want

Since i can’t go where i need to go . . . then i must . . . go
where the signs point through always understanding parallel movement
isn’t lateral

When i can’t express what i really feel i practice feeling
what i can express and none of it is equal

I know but that’s why mankind alone among the animals learns to cry
