This is an old poem I am publishing here for archival purposes. It was written March 19, 2001. It is a simple meditation written almost like a prayer.
I see you fear, but I choose courage.
I see you anger, but I choose compassion.
I see you pride, but I choose humility.
I see you guilt, but I choose innocence.
I see you envy, but I choose kindness.
I see you sadness, but I choose inspiration.
I see you sloth, but I choose diligence.
I will seek emptiness to find answers within.
I will forsake falsehoods for truth.
I will disbelieve illusion to find my way.
I will tear down walls that hold me back.
I will feel with all my being.
I will become whole and I will atone.
I will overcome and I will stand up.
The shadows will not hide my Light
And I will become One.
