A flourishing life

February 22, 2010

~
What is it you want
Give language to your desires
Plan accordingly
~
I have learned to dream
Bring discipline to my plan
Seek, listen, write and respond
I’ll pay attention
~
Choose your mentors well
Make them the best that you know
Then do what they do
I have learned to ask for help
Before I act, not after
~
Decide to do good
Back that goodness with knowledge
Aim at self-control
Perseverance is a must
Look with wonder at your world
~
Be kind to those you meet
In the presence of others
Give your utmost respect
It is sacred ground
~
After kindness give your love
If you will practice these things
You will discover real life
Relationships flourish
