My foundation does not start with this body or
With my parents or anything. It is the whole
Of who I am. With eagerness I came into
This contrast and variety. My life is new
And exciting. I have no particular goal.
Everything about this world I came to explore.
A thought that thrills me is one worth my pursuing,
And one that disappoints me is one that is not.
There’s no way I can feel unworthy of the bliss.
My feelings are my guidance. I’m glad I know this.
What I’m thinking and feeling does matter a lot.
I find fulfillment in whatever I’m doing.
I do not want to behave ‘appropriately’
By accepting the notion that life is supposed
To be hard and that suffering is a virtue.
Pardon me, world, but that is not my point of view.
‘Socialized’ people have hearts and minds that are closed
To the idea of living resistance free.
It’s easy to calibrate to ‘what is,’ but it
Takes a master to calibrate to what is not
Yet apparent. It does take determination,
Focus, and clarity. I am here to have fun.
I try to remember what most people forgot.
Everything I learn must be to my benefit.
