Their Choices, My Future

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 12:01 -- jmd2017

It was their choice to have me, not mine.

It was also their choice to have 5 other children, not mine.  

It was their choice to have two cars, not mine.

It was their choice to live in this house, not mine.

It was their choice to dip into the college funds, not mine.

It was their choice to spend it all, not mine.

It was Samantha's choice to attend West Virginia University, not mine. 

It is my choice to make a future for myself.

It is my choice to go to college and try to become something.

But my choices are yet impacted by their choices.

Their choices, but my future.

How is that fair?
