A steadfast spirit
I seek on this life journey
What does that look like?
I think of kindness
And respect for others
Those nearest me
I’ll look to refresh
Learn what it means to love them
Consider their needs
I am in training
To learn a foreign language
The language of love
Give respect to all
Because they are human beings
Just because they are
We all make a decision
What is the basis of love?
How I will treat you
Will be determined by me
Not by how you treat me
I learned this from my teacher
Who modeled living in joy~
Love that is larger than life
Peace that is deeper than pain
Joy that is overflowing
A discovery

It’s outside the box
A treasure to be found
By those who are seeking
