Things in life that must be done
A journey to take another rung.
Mountains to climb valleys deep
Events to forget and memories to keep.
Bless a child and give a rose
Write some lines or read a prose.
Idle a while and daydream
On the banks of the crystal stream.
Talk with strangers make new friends
Listen their story see how it ends.
Pray for peace around the world
Freedom for ever boy and girl.
Plant some trees and watch the bees
Sway with the wind enjoy the breeze.
Sparkle your eyes at night with the stars
Make more love and fight to end wars.
Get up go out and have some fun
Bask in the golden summer sun
To hate and lies cry shameful!
Be content you are beautiful.
