Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “opt.” Use it as a word or find a word with “opt” in it and base your post on that. Have fun!


It is the thing of happening
No control or input
That is life
But that is also not true
Everybody else
Isn’t at the instrument panel
The one that picks the direction
Opts for one response or another
You are not a chess piece
On somebody else’s game board
Waiting to be surrendered
Or make a valuable move
Determine the win or the lose
In your hands, your decisions
Stay silent or speak up
Rock the boat
Or travel the well-worn path
Drown in the rain
Or sing and float downstream
It isn’t set in stone
An unmovable mountain
That you have no say over
This is you, your life
And you CAN do anything
