A song for the brave
In the sky of the mind, the song of truth is like a gentle breeze;
It is refreshing, it is sweet, it is caressing, it is good.
Now this basic truth of humanity has been transmitted to you
Cherish it like a small ember of delight in this dark world of doubt
When you feel scared, be gentle and don't panic
Wait a brief moment, touch your heart;
Feel vulderable and strong, then relax
When you find yourself at the crossroads of genuineness and deception,
Proclaim your basic goodness, and do not forget that you are human
Realize that this power of goodness is your birthright
When you feel confident
You can kiss the sky
Smile, for this is the gift of humanity.
