I’ll Choose Love

We cannot control the way people treat us, but we can with mindfulness and practice, control the way we respond. We can stay strong, stay proud and make choices that support who we are and who we want to be.

When haters hate,
when closed minds do not open,
when people need to put me down
to build themselves up,
I will remember who I am,
and I'll choose love,  

When the fearful are mean,
when they lack tolerance and compassion,
when they cannot understand
we are all the same inside,
I will remember who I am,
and I'll choose love,

When other's judge,
when I might be drawn into their darkness,
I will stay in the light,
I will find forgiveness,
I will decide who I want to be,
and I'll choose love...
