A poignant prose about career choices and it trades- off, written in syllabic ryhme.

"career decision.."

"My best career decision was probably not giving up when I wanted to. God as well as my family and friends were there for me during my toughest times."
-Jeremy Lin (Harvard Educated and NBA Player)

The Choice

Would you rather be
A lawyer who screw his way to purgatory
or the geek that get high on the dormitory?
A humming fisherman lest he speak to the sea
as his soliloquy can turn fishes to bees.

Would you rather be
A fame doctor but will lost his license on a lawsuit
or the golfer aiming to his first green suit?
A student writing diary lest he loses his sanity
as his melancholy echoes through the university.

Would you rather be
A brave fireman that gave his lungs in ground zero
or a prized fighter breaking every jaws to be hero?
A father writing a possible mementoes for his children
as his last gems of thought when he got bed ridden.

"..I would rahter be"


Would you rather be
An engineer who cemented his fortune with bribery
or a decorated soldier riding on political machinery
A retiree collecting your memoirs against Parkinson's
as your hand trembles begging to die soon.

Would you rather be
A scholar with all learned knowledge published
or sports journalist hyping their heroes on PED?
An artist liberating his mind for the world to see
as he bare his soul for creative fancy.

Would you rather be
A monk without a bank loan except a grant in heaven
or a teacher living menially for others children?
A politician who's permanent interest outlive his term
as he swing his advocacy and never reaffirm.

Would you rather be
A God that divided men for your religion
or a brat rich kid that that just need attention?
An actor acted a hundred roles except himself
as his good deed is as fiction as that of an ellf?

Ah I would rather be
the man that I am and what I've chosen to become
or what i will still be when all others had gone.
An identity that forged by own chances made not by destiny
or anyone lest to be just somebody not me.

Andprobably hear or witnessed that not great jobs and endeavors are all bed of roses, there are dark sides that a person might get trapped with it.

Thank you CoffeeQueen...did not intend to be thought provoking but just something to ponder on and being cautious on the career to choose.
