Crystal clear
shining in moonlight
preserving everything
hiding nothing

encased quiet
wrapped and solid
closed yet open
like fossils

looks fragile
only to warmth
growing stronger
getting colder

covering all
yet hiding nothing
if only life
were like ice


Talk to someone you don’t know today
share a smile with a stranger
include someone in your life
make your circle larger

Give hope to someone who is down
a shoulder to those less strong
listen to a broken heart speak
open your heart wider

Praise someone who has overcome
or one who has done well
a pat on the back can change a life
open your arms farther

Practice inclusion with every step
dismiss none think of all
walk for a second in another’s shoes
open your life each moment more


Open yourself to the possibilities inside

new adventures new journeys steps to take

every part of your soul nothing to hide

success in this life is something you make

Open your soul to what is real what is true

bypass the fake ignore the lies

the journey begins right inside of you

success only comes to he who tries

Open your mind to learn more every day

every moment has something to teach

absorb knowledge listen to what those who have paved the way have to say

success is in your path all you need do is reach

Open your heart to those who would seek to guide

those who can teach and can be part of the team

success is a journey be sure to enjoy the ride

and everything can be yours all you need do is dream
