Between life and death, the choice is clear...choose life;
When life has the victory...we all can share....choose life;
When death's sting's the punishment we cannot bear...choose life;
When fully living is the answer...we all can dare to choose life;

Keep your vision before you and we all may declare...choose life;
Keep your hopes in mind and we may say or exclaim...choose life!;
Are your wishes your world or your perils?...choose life;

Are you happy or sad? Are you witty or bad?....choose life;
Is death too damning? Is the world a mess?....choose life;
Is the spirit within you or is existence a drag?....choose life;
Don't lose your life when you go out for a spin.....choose life;

And may all of your life choices be just as significant as that important decision when you choose life...Happy & joyful living to you all, brothers and sisters...

(Life choices can be just as daunting and risky as that initial decision to want to live abundantly and with purpose. Give life a chance...don't give death the victory and please be prepared to live with the consequences of your decisions and actions in this life and in the life to come. Thank you.)

I really enjoyed the repetition of "choose life" in all of our circumstances. Effective writing. I don't think you needed the parenthetical comments at the end; they were almost anticlimactic after such a meaningful poem. Thanks for the encouragement!

Ever thought about having this scored...very much like a lyric.
