I will not by my life be floored
when I may take it on the chin,
staggering till balance restored,
stand up straight and tall again.
Wait, could it be that I am lost,
upright, walking a wrong trail?
Perhaps not wrong, what a cost,
timid, will I succeed, will I fail?
Every path is mine to explore.
One to another, as I traverse all,
take part, life’s show once more.
Does not matter if I stand or fall.
Gather what is found on the way,
experiencing all creation’s glory,
every single instant called today,
so I will have added to the story.
Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
