In the midst of the crowd

Let the “news”
be none of your concern;
turn away and
make your own.

You have all you need,
an abundance of wealth
resides within you,
so choose your own will.

Don’t be tempted,
for the fool gratifies himself;
delay what you want,
appreciate what you have.

Focus on the Idea,
and craft your wood;
let it take shape,
and project your dreams.

Find love in what matters most
and dive in;
master it,
and grow beyond.

What matters,
you cannot see;
what you can hear,
you can ignore.

Be inquisitive,
live in solitude
in the midst of the crowd,
and live out the answers.

For every moment

For every moment
I think I cannot face,
I can.

This ailment
of anticipation
delivers a shadow.

For every day
I think I cannot,
I do.

Contradictions found
where fear lurks
until truth revealed.

For every person
I dare not confront,
I can.

My eyes cannot see
and my thoughts
are no friend.

In every way
I believe I cannot,
I will.

In everything I do
I become,
for nothing to fear

knowing who I am.
