An Unfinished Song
Through all the noise and haste in life, remember how much peace there is in silence.
Speak your mind quietly, clearly, and truthfully as long as possible without surrender and stay on good terms with all the people you cross paths with. Don't compare yourself to others.
There will always be greater and lesser than you. It can only make you jealous, vain or bitter.
All three will dim the greatest light inside of you.
Be happy with your achievements. They are a wonderful possesion.
Stay humble. Stay interested, stay interesting, listen well, even to the boring and the ignorant, they also will have a story and it's not baggage, it's called life.
Hopefully you can learn to carry yours with grace.
Take kindly to the teachings of the years. Gracefully surrender the things of your youth. You will always be a child of this world.
The world is full of evil and deceit, don't let it blind you to all the virtue there is in the world.
So many people are striving for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Love yourself, love life. Don't be cynical about love, with all it's heartache and disenchantment,
it's still as perennial as the grass. Embrace it. Nurture it. Don't ever save your best for last.
Whatever your hardships and inspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep a peace in your soul.
With all it's broken dreams and unkept promises, it's still a beautiful world.
And when you have doubt, spit it out, never stop believing.
And the times when you fall down, kiss the ground and get up.
Trust me, you'll learn a lot about you while bleeding.
You are an unfinished song. Make them remember you.
Go on and take a chance, go have your dance, go romance romance,
Be a drop, a trickle, a waterfall, Just be.
