Reasons

All you need is a reason to hope,
To love,
To dream,
To be grateful for the calm after the storm.

All you need is a reason to despair,
To hate,
To doubt,
To believe you don’t deserve happiness.

All you need is a reason to trust,
To see the good in others,
To know that you are welcomed, valued,
To see the difference you make in the world.

All you need is a reason to be angry,
To think everyone is against you,
To feel that you’d be better off dead,
To accept defeat and capitulate to evil within.

All it takes is a choice,
A change in direction,
To make any reason actionable.
It is up to you to decide which path to follow.
