Torn between religion and the Gods,
I choose the Gods.
Torn between exclusion and inclusion,
I choose to be inclusive.
Torn between compromise or retaining my beliefs,
I choose to stand firm.
Torn between losing my religious identity or being outcast,
I choose to stand alone.
Torn between remaining silent or speaking out,
I choose to respond.
Torn between making hard choices or settling for easy fixes,
I choose to do what is right.
Torn between what the Gods want and what I have to offer,
I choose to give my all.
My life has been torn between so many things,
But it is I alone who makes the choices !
