We are life,
We are love.
We make our world,
We make our life,
Whatever we want it to be.

We must remember,
Remember that it is we,
We who carry out our lives.

Our lives are only,
Only what we make of them.
If we make them to be sad,
Lonely,
Pathetic...
Then that is what they will be.

My life is not sad,
Not Pathetic,
Not lonely...
Today...

Tomorrow my life may change.
It may become hard,
No fun,
And pathetic...

But today,
Today my life is good...
I love me...
Me loves you...

The depths of the mind,
The mind which creates,
Distroys,
Cares,
Hates,
Loves,
Wraths,
This heart,
It is what decides our fate.

We are whatever we choose to be.
Like it or not,
We are one,
And as one,
We are Us.

"We are whatever we choose to be".  That line says it all, and you said the rest well also.
Nice writing!

remember yesterday, live for today, hope for tommorrow.

 "Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Something to think about here Jone.  We are who we choose to be.   Nice writing about how the choices we make in our lives can determine who and what we are.   James
