Make the Right Choices

She is proud of him
for taking a stand,
not running away from responsibility,
realizing his actions have consequences.

Decisions are not easy to make
but putting one foot in front of the other,
is a step in the right direction.

Telling the truth
will always let his heart feel peace as he walks this journey of life, making the right choices.


May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.

— Nelson Mandela
