What stays what goes
What’s joy what forebodes
Where do you find footing
Pray for when no one’s looking

What blocks movement has you soar
Makes you bolt for the door
Who’s handsome who brings a frown
Who’s optimistic who turns you down

When lonely fills you up
Brings big smiles when in the cups
Who stimulates engages your mind
Who taps creativity never a grind

These questions essential to ask
Looking for your unique path
Others say do not judge
Sorting’s elitist fosters a grudge

We do express ourselves
Choosing what’s on our shelves
Never stop picking why even try
Select celebrate what you buy

Your choice never better worse
Only different never a curse
Respect what’s on their plate
You won’t be held up at the gate

What criteria do you use choosing work, people, possessions, behavior, character, politicians, movies and reading?
