In times of strife and confusion
may we remember our highest purpose and ideals.
We don’t have to live in a ‘perfect world’
because my definition of a perfect world
may be different to yours,
but we can strive to be our highest selves.
Especially in times like now
where everything is for sale
like smiles, attention and false hope.
You and I can be like the lotus flower,
elegant, peaceful and firm,
and with the right love and care
open all our petals in full glory.
