The choice


A man is truly powerful ! 

If he has the power to create life 
    he also has the power to snatch it 

If he has the power to bring a smile 
   he also has the power to haunt 

if he has the power to make millions our of a cent 
   he also has the power to snatch millions and give a cent 

If he has the power to feed his family 
    he also has the power to starve his neighbour 

if he has the power to heal a wound 
    he also has the power to create another 

If he has the power to build a society 
   he also has the power to destroy another

 If he has the power to protect his country   
   he also has the power to sufficate his country 

 If he has the power to love a fellow human 
    he also has the power to imbibe hatred into an entire community 

its but upto a man to decide what he choses to do - to create or to destroy !

so true..unfortunately, most of the time men uses destructive ways to show who is in charge of the situation. its almost as if the choice is preconceived in their bloodstream

rightly said.. we have the power to make life the way we want (mostly).. many of us would deny and say "its game of destiny" but well, its game of beliefs...
make or break.. its up to us..
Nice write up.

U have the choice to hate or forgive
U have the choice to be hated or forgiven
U have the choice to be weak or strong

To Us,
Holding on comes easily, judging comes easily. Letting go does not, being judged does not. In the circle of choices that we have, its not only the choices that we make that matter, its the choices that we offer as well.

...easier said, easier written than done.....(just a general statement).
