Poem About Making Good Choices

This poem is about thinking before you speak or do something. It's about knowing that every day, the choices we make can and will affect our lives. It's about being accountable for our choices in life. We have the right to make our decisions every day, and every day is a new day. But there will come a day when our lives will end, and we will be accountable for all of the things we have said and done. I wrote this poem for my three children.

Your story is written day by day.
It is written with things that you do and say.

Daily you start with a page that is blank.
The emptiness fills throughout the day.

By nightfall your page is complete, and it turns
to a blank one again, just waiting for words.

These pages you fill, and the chapters go by
with memories of good times and reasons to cry.

Some chapters you wish you could rip up and shred.
Some things you regret to have said.

There are chapters of wonderful times that you knew,
things to praise God for, the blessings that grew.

Suddenly without notice, these pages are none. 
Not by your choice but because His will be done.

Then you will take this book up to the sky,
to hand over to God of your life that went by.

This book should be special; it's all about you.
It is written by all that you say and you do.
