FOR OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS… HOW GOOD CAN IT GET?
Reignite longing for the love you sought with first breath in this life;
Recall the dream that called you here, the call you recognize.
You are not what others label you, nor can you be unloved;
Your path through life is blessed by Earth below and sky above.
Even feeling weak and troubled, your words and smiles heal;
You are the very conduit by which dreams become real.
You are not the triumphs nor the troubles you or others think you caused;
Nor are you bad or evil, nor can you ever be truly lost.
The purest essence of your being is infinite, eternal love;
The quiet voice inside you is a compass guided from above.
Feelings of joy, love, fear, anger, sorrow–your true self sees them all;
Emotions come and go like words written, then rain-washed off a slate wall.
Hold fast to your highest values–the ones you treasure best;
Know that by life’s hardships, challenges and dilemmas you are truly blessed.
Your character becomes you as thoughts and habits shape who you are;
Choosing words and actions wisely has the power to take you far.
Keep kind counsel of others’ foibles, doubts, misgivings, and fears;
Knowing regretted words can later cause needless suffering and tears.
There is no way you can ever fail nor ever truly fall;
Your inner light of being will learn and grow through it all.
Serve fully and give your best in everything you do;
And most of all be gentle, kind, compassionate and loving to you.
With hope you change the future, with gratitude the past;
You heal the world when thankful for the first and optimistic for the last.
True strength comes from kindness; courage only thrives with love;
There is no greater honor than showing this is what you’re made of.
