Don’t be afraid to just be you,
And to your intuition true.
You needn’t play by other rules
Designed to please exclusive fools.
You needn’t choose a camp or side,
When in the Way you do abide.
Learn from everyone you meet,
And take your pond’rings to the street.
Enact your values with great care,
Be kind and generous and fair.
If in love you make your way,
There’s nothing anyone can say.
Embrace your weird, your zen, your bliss
For there is peace and joy in this.
Don’t let those others say you’re wrong.
Accept yourself, and you’ll belong.
God looks at the heart,
Not the church or club or creed.
Love is what we need.
Fluid in Spirit,
I learn from the many paths.
Why limit one’s self?
I am but a passing shade;
Here today, but soon to fade.
Yet this is not a cause for grief,
For though our stay here might be brief,
Each one of us now has the chance
To make a move in life’s grand dance.
Don’t wait another beat to say
Important things along the way.
Don’t stall in being kind or true,
And don’t stop cultivating “you.”
Be quick with generosity,
Respecting everyone you see.
Share and give and love and smile.
We’re only here a little while.
Today I’ll see
The best in me.
For I am free
To live and “be,”
Lost in the sea
And endless productivity.
The reason we decree
Is that we need to be
Free from scrutiny.
If like our enemy,
We do “what’s right to me,”
We could not but agree
That all act selfishly.
