A Single Moment

A single moment...

One simple thing 

could be what turns out

to redefine me.

I may not know when it happens, 

So must choose for the wise

in all of my choices

throughout my life. 

Should I choose, however,

what that moment would be, 

I would choose going to college,

getting a degree.

Choosing a subject 

to live out my life

doing what I love

Working through strife.

A smiling face

despite the hashness of life,

for mine is a state

of being alive.
