The observant eye, the open mind, they elevate the mind higher.
Will burns down to action against the radiation of desire.
Knowledge distills into perception when stoked in the fires of choice.
Thoughts become words of inspiration, when truth is given voice.
When love becomes a standard by which man lives a life.
Passion yields to commitment, a friend becomes a wife.
When admiration gives in to duty, all things can be done
Two minds, two wills, two hearts two passions all fold into one.
As one thing becomes another, evolution unfolds to the eye.
Hearing becomes listening, seeing understanding, overcomes the common lie.
Simple acts may not be easy. Things of value rarely are.
Pursuit of which is needed for mankind to achieve his star.
And so I journey within my own heart, to discover the mystery of all things.
And to discern my own innocence and to discover my own wings.
I am grateful to my creator for the beauty of all complication.
And but the simplicity of decision which hath built up a nation.
Life is but a dream, a children's rhyme once told
A brief and troubled moment, whether hot or cold.
Our choice not the circumstance but only how we respond.
This shall be my focus. May my word be my bond.
