Do not live your life
By assumptions and rote.
Let your answer to strife
Be a strong, solid vote
For Courage and Truth.

Always live from your core,
Like you did as a child.
Never fail to ignore
Any urge, calm or wild,
That defies Wisdom's couth.

And above all be true
To Integrity's soul.
In whatever you do,
Remain joyfully whole
In your beautiful heart.

For this life that you live,
As intense as it seems,
Is intended to give
Not false magic of dreams,
But your Power's true art.

Dedicated to my husband, QuietBear, who inspired this poem
