We all choose very different lifestyles
but none are right or wrong
Some may be healthier than others
but that is our very own choice

Nothing is forced upon us
so if you choose to drift
that is still your choice
not to make a deliberate decision

Lifestyles include our choice of home,
it’s location, our partners and our beliefs,
diet, sense of fashion, a budget or none,
our carbon footprint and how we react

I find a conscious choice of core values
to live by gives me purpose
As drifting with the masses
doesn’t sit comfortably with me

We should never judge others choices
because we have no idea what
circumstances led them there
Be fully aware if you choice to abide

By societal norms and mores
for they are dictated by those in control
of wars, finances, politics, media and more
Make defined choices and stay strong

Find like-minded people who support
positive warmth and kindness
Avoid those that drain or complain
for our life is far too short!
