Each morning I pause, to give thanks for my glee
Throw love to the world, and think … who will I be?
A builder, a painter, I spread out my wings
A teacher, a comic, or a woman who sings?
I want to be kind, honest, and strong
And I’ve learned that in life, it’s okay to be wrong
The mistakes I have made, they taught me the most
The greatest of which, is never to boast
Or to think my opinions, and critiques should be cast
On to those who’ve experienced, a much different past
There are so many options, when you’re open to life
And so many thoughts, that can fill you with strife
You can be the creator of positive energy
Make it part of your essence, treat others tenderly
Or cast disapproval, on how people behave
Create negativity, which makes you a slave
To thoughts that don’t give, happiness or peace
They’ll eat at your soul, and fill you with grief
There are so many choices, to make every day
But the most important of all, is to live in a way
That brings hope, love and joy, to all those you know
Spreading positive energy, is yours to bestow.
Each day I set out to make someone laugh
To give more to the world, than I have in the past
I’m not always able, to live up to this goal
But I’m hoping the effort, will build up my soul.
