Your Choices and Actions Affect the Whole World

Lifelong Exam
by Rachel Hoyt

One vote,
One voice,
One life to live.

One heart,
Two hands,
To get and give.

Your way,
Their way,
Whose is best?

Could we,
Can we,
Ace this test?

This poem was inspired by a variety of news
which reminds me we should be careful what we choose:

For assistance determining which presidential candidate you like best,


  1. Great poem.
    Is that the marble from the end of Men In Black?
    Most choices in life can't be undone. We should strive to make good decisions first and foremost. Then there is little chance for regret later.

    1. Sorry. I thought I replied to this comment forever ago! I don't know if it's from the Men in Black. I've seen the movie, but wasn't thinking of it at the time. :)

  2. I miss reading your stuff. Well, I'm back now.

    Eloquent as always

    1. Thanks for coming back! :) I'm glad you enjoyed the poem.
