you take your grief and teach it
you overcome your fear and help
others to do the same.
you see a flower and are thankful
for the blessing.
your own pain does not blind you
to the pain of others.
you know the limits of your wisdom.
you admit there are times you fool
tomorrow's hope means more to you
than yesterday's mistake.
you know what you are but not
what you will become.
you are in control of yourself and
do not wish to control others.
you find your honor is to honor
you can take as sweetly as you
you do not know how humble you are.
you see me just as I am and
treat me just as you are.
you forgive in others the faults
you condemn in yourself.
you don't need a mirror to
when you never need more than what you
You are you...when you are at peace with who you are not.
