What guides you in this life,
to do the things you do?
Why be the person that you are,
developing the real you?
These forces can be like fathers;
strong, reliable, wise.
They can also make life a prison,
bury you where you’ll never rise.
How to choose those to follow,
and those you should ignore?
Right can seem the same as wrong,
each choice behind a similar door.
The choices keep on coming,
every day of our lives.
They make us who we are
even when we no longer rise.
