Think deeply about life.
Hold people closely, gently, in your heart.
Think deeply of the things that nourish:
Care and hope, compassion, truth, light.
Think deeply about what you know
And what you still would like to find out knowledge of.
Think deeply of the seeds you plant
In your soul’s soil
Think deeply of the past and all its lessons
Of the way it can shape future histories
Or repeat woe.
Think deeply of the power of both joy and sorrow
Of the choices that can lead to more of both
And which one matters more.
Think deeply of the path you walk
The roads you pave for children and their children’s children
For this Earth.
Think deeply of all this
And think beyond it
Yet above and through and in between all of this
Breathe in light
Breathe out hope
