Свобода выбора

Возможен выбор поражения.
Возможно, право победить.
Смотрю я в небо безмятежно
И слышу моря синий рык.
Возможна пена над волною,
Возможен ветра терпкий бриз,
Но все закончится тобою,
Финал нельзя предотвратить.
Мне не жалеть о постоянстве,
Взлететь ли птицей в облака,
Песчинкой в миге и пространстве
Я растворяюсь навсегда.
Возможно, право поражения.
Возможен выбор победить.
Огонь живет своим горением.
Свобода выбора – светить.
