Choice – Our Global Impact

Today I am excited to share with you the final poem in the series, until there is more magic uncovered in its own time. This has been such an enjoyable (and liberating!) experience being able to share such personal moments with you.

CHOICE is about awareness – the awareness that leads us to making choices that benefit ourselves, our communities and ultimately our planet. This awareness has led me on a path of vegetarianism, volunteerism and personal growth.

Thank you dearly for hearing my truth.


I struggle with my choices
I struggle with my cravings
I struggle with the earth
Falling victim to my taking
She’s frying, drying
Crying and dying
Because of my choice and his choice
And her choice and our choice
To consume in excess
Daily, casually, formally
I preach the earth’s sustainability
While I overlook her fragility
From loss of trees for burgers and cheese
I’m a hypocrite, I’m a traitor
I’m a liar, I’m a hater
Where do I go from here
So our 7 billion can shake the fear
And our plants can survive
Seeds will grow
Overgrazing will go
Away for good
Balance finally understood
A vision for today
Our work for tomorrow
Awareness my guide
Out of this sorrow

PS If this is the first poem you’re seeing in the series, go back to the first: I am enough.
