Poem: The Choice

 He thought so little of me I became small,
 So small I hardly knew me at all.

 His expectations of me were low as the grave,
 So I tried to fulfill in my usual way.

 I was as clean and quiet as I could be
 with a bottle of pills and a whiskey neat.

 But the pills fell away when I heard a voice,
 Whisper inside that "life is a choice".

 "Love empowers and never destroys,
 but love will die without any voice."

 So I spoke up, and I stood my ground,
 and that is why I am here with you now.
