Though constantly I criticise
Events and people, I persist
In seeing the potential good
In life, when taken on the whole.
An open attitude to change
Does justice to the universe
We find ourselves inhabiting,
Fascinating for its offerings.
Devotion to a cause can be
A consolation for our woes;
We're given opportunities
To aid another or assist
In working for a common goal.
Decisions that we make each day
Determine if the path we take
Stays the same or grows organically.
