A poetic verse of encouragement for myself and others.

Treasures, pleasures, worries, tears,
all the lessons learned from years,
toils that make a day grow long,
knowledge gained from will grown strong,
listen closely, silence teaches,
lose the languid preachy speeches,
let your mind break earthen coils,
shed the wings that never soar,
rest your mind and expectations,
lead yourself in new directions,
break your halo, scrap your guard,
erase your history that was scarred,
grow a newer thicker skin,
find your grit and then begin
to build anew the day to be,
washed in wishes you would see,
molded by your hands from thought,
where what could be was what was not
and what desire burdened you
becomes the ever only true.
