I'M LEARNING HOW

EVERY DAY I'M LEARNING HOW
TO WALK A STRAIGHTER MILE,
I'VE EVEN FOUND A WAY TO GREET
A SADNESS WITH A SMILE.
I HAVE DISCOVERED INNER STRENGTH,
I KNEW NOT I POSSESSED,
A QUIET PEACE THAT FLUTTERS,
LIKE A DOVE WITHIN MY BREAST.

I'VE LEARNED WHAT IS REALITY,
AND WHAT IS MAKE-BELIEVE,
AND THAT IT ISN'T SMART TO WEAR
ONE'S HEART UPON ONE'S SLEEVE.

I'VE LEARNED TO BE MORE TOLERANT,
WITH OTHERS AND MYSELF,
AND THAT ONE CANNOT TRULY GIVE,
...UNTIL ONE GIVES HIMSELF.

I'M LEARNING TO APPRECIATE
THE DAYS THAT HURRY BY,
TO BE CONTENT AND KNOW THAT THERE
ARE NONE SO RICH AS I.

I'VE FOUND MY TRUE VOCATION,
WHAT I WAS MEANT TO DO...
AND WHEN LIFE MOCKS TO SMILE, AND SAY,
...'I'M MERELY PASSING THROUGH!"
