What occupies my mind and heart
at this time of my life
is that the joy in life I feel
spreads out in ripples from my soul.
What occupies my body,
though it's rather more mundane,
allows my mind to swoop and soar
above the simple, earthly plane.
Look to yourself for all you need.
Approve your life. Follow your dreams.
If only one heeds this refrain,
my heartfelt hope springs free.
