The Choice (poem by Alfred K. Lamotte)
The Choice poem by Alfred K. Lamotte Hills of Purple Heather (mixed media) by Polly Castor

The Choice

If you want a bitter
seedless life,
just keep identifying your
self as victim.
Just keep
blaming others
for your circumstance.
But if you want your
heart to melt into
the impeccable splendor
of the golden sun
and illuminate the earth
with courage,
take off the cloak
of your old story.
Step naked
through the portal
of the present moment
into a kingdom
where darkness sparkles
and silence sings,
because there is
no judgment,
and fear is swallowed up
in Love.

by Alfred K. Lamotte

I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    I’m starting with the man in the mirror
    I’m asking him to change his ways
    And no message could’ve been any clearer
    If they wanna make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make a change….
