Decisions & Actions

He told me of our fate

She impressed on me to cogitate:

By decisions and by actions

We fall or we will elevate


To hide our lies may tempt our gaze

But truth will ever penetrate

By decisions and by actions

We fall or we will elevate


We may try, but we will fail

Should we attempt to forward blame

By decisions and by actions

We fall or we will elevate


Privilege and wealth may mitigate

But time and tide adjudicate

By decisions and by actions

We fall or we will elevate


Damned or praised by what we say

But what we do will seal our fate

By decisions and by actions

We fall or we will elevate
