The Summation of Life in a Million Little Choices

Each small choice.
A stone, or a flower.
Creating the story of a life.

To turn toward, or to turn away.
A direction taken with a single step.
Building a lifetime of experience.

Returning a look with a smile or a frown.
A life of love or aloneness.
Hinging up a split-second decision.

Each choice a building block.
No one a magnanimous event.
So small as to seem insignificant in impact
Collectively, the summation of a life.
