" Following along with the same old - same old; will only ensure more of the same.
Color my world with humanity not sympathy.
Border it with peace and understanding; not violence, and ignorance.
Give it windows where I can view nature as mirrors that cast my own reflection,
and a door for keeping out the cold, and nothing else
Make it's foundation from natural soft absorbing sponge, and not of rigid man made brick.
Only then will words have meaning, and the hearts desire shine like a canopy of heavenly stars. "
