Every day, I rise to a blank and vacant space,
one I am to fill, with eloquence and grace,
use my mind for the witness of beauty,
the potentials of possibility
and devout in my expression for posterity.
In this I am committed,
the thoughts that wander my mind
need be positive, worthy and kind,
and what I do in deeds, selfless,
and in compassion will I concede, my humility.
Each night, as the sun finds rest,
I attest my vows of creativity,
my quest to make the best of each moment of life,
regardless of circumstance and strife,
and to always seek to understand others,
for they are as me, striving.
Each morning I ask for the best from myself,
in all the aspects of love and kindness
that I can muster in my old cynical bones,
and beyond all else I will strive
for beauty to bathe my eyes,
and deliver my thoughts to how grateful I am to be alive.
