Choice

I shall return from my walk a new person
Is that not the purpose of the journey

If I taste good
If I taste bad
If I mourn 
Or if I’m glad
It is certainly my choice

But I shall return a new person

I may dwell where the wild waters flow
I  may rest by the contemplative pools
I may rise up to conquer the mountain tops
Or I may dive off the cliffs into the sea
It is certainly my choice

But I shall return a new person

Shall I fear the way that I go
Shall I stall to stay in one place
Shall I plunge into the abyss
Shall I take courage to stand in the mist
I certainly may – it is my choice

But I shall return a new person

So I shall go
	I shall stay
	        I shall dither
	                I shall stray
I shall live
	I shall die
		I shall believe
			I shall lie

But I shall return a new person
Because certainly that is my choice

But I shall go in the Father’s arms
I shall stay in the same abode
I shall die in His love
I shall live in Him

And I am a new person
