Code of Conduct

I want to imagine that relaxation
Is a normal part of living...

I choose to believe that we can reach
A point in life where looking back
And looking forward are equally rewarding.

I will build a better frame of mind
One step at a time by practising
The strictest kind of loyalty to those I love.

Sunshine will be part of the prescription,
Giving me the courage to see clearly.

Shadows cast by the moon will rescue me
From a too-precise interpretation of events.

On all occasions, I will seek the guidance
Of my private muse.
