Fork in the Road

Those little choices 
we make on a daily basis
drive the use and overuse 
we make of the Planet Earth.
Those choices underscore 
our choice as a species 
of being here or not.
What we wear,
what we eat,
where and how we live.
Do we buy based upon needs or wants?
Do we consciously consider
what makes sustainable choices?
Do we make choices
that will not compromise 
the life ways of those who follow?
What would
those who are yet to come
(Human and Non-Human)
say to us now?
These choices are in our hands.
Every choice is yet
another fork in the road.
Do we want to be here or not?
I choose to stay.
