Oh my twisted heart,
I wait wistfully, patiently, uncertainly
For thy doubts to unravel.
Sooth the crinkled corners of your secret places;
Stretch the forgotten strength of youth.
Find again the confidence and faith born
Greatly and simply from truth.

Oh My frenzied mind,
Let go calmly, deliberately, thoughtfully
Of cares beyond thy sphere.
Center the immediate moment;
Relish in the color and taste of today.
What went before and what comes after
Reflect mere shadows in the haze.

Greatness is cousin to growth,
gained by doing, seeking exercising
The promise buried within.
Crack the brittle shell that binds
Let the green and tender shoots rise up
Live the Vibrant Life!
