On My Own Terms~

Today I awoke to a new sunrise much to my own surprise~
Last night I said goodnight and good bye~
Somewhere in the night I found what I long had been seeking
Heaven it was not, Hell it was not
It was neither hot or cold not young or old
It was neither better nor worst not even surprising, truth be told

In fact it posed more questions than answers offered
Some where in the midst of my confusion I did hear “why are you here?”
Not knowing where here was I had no answers so I responded “I do not know”
“So why did you come?” I pondered and had to admit the deepest truth of all
“I had simply run out of choices” long pause, followed by an even longer silence
Then came the response, “Here is never a choice given, nor is it an option to be taken”
Once again pause yet again another period of silence then
“Your seemingly lack of choices there is in fact you having being here; so what you imagine to be the act of coming here is simply you having fallen asleep there. You will never be free of there by simply a lack of choices but having lived on your terms, forsaking all others”

Today I awoke to a new sunrise not at all to my surprise
Living on my own terms~
