May I live as I believe and be free?
A simple life of authenticity,
of what I believe, you need not agree.
I can live with vulnerability.
I know my truth; my lessons learned and sought.
For each seeker, there is a path to reach,
a spiral staircase of wisdom’s thoughts,
an open heart and open mind they teach.
Yet, until we can see humanity
in all of those we love and revile,
we sleep through this life of insanity
immersed in our nightmare all the while.
We must learn to love and see, within each,
I am you, and you are another me.
