ALWAYS A BETTER WAY
Portia E. Calleja
Speak to me about desperation;
I will give you hope.
Look at me with grief;
I will return a gracious smile.
Show me disbelief;
I will share with you my faith.
Tell me you're in haste;
I will urge you to calm down.
Talk to me in useless arguments;
I will answer you in silence.
Speak to me of mental torture;
I will exhibit inner peace.
Give me an account of violence;
I will recount some peaceful means.
Do me any form of abuses;
You'll see, I will still be whole.
Talk to me about being tired of living;
Just look how happy I am to be alive.
Life will always be
Choices of make or break.
Whatever I choose to do,
Whatever I choose to be,
However I choose to feel,
I make sure I take the better way.
