Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.

Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test
