When chaos reigns, there is misguided freewill.
Separate yourself from the crowd, learn to be still.
Be willing to take the lead, but be able to follow too.
Make an informed decision, and see it through.
Be unbreakable but know how to bend.
Be able to start, but be able to end.
There is a way to be strong, at the same time soft.
Find a way to turn it on, but don't forget to turn it off.
Give whenever and whatever you can give,
make it part of you and the way you live.
Seek answers for what you want to know.
Throughout your life, continue to grow.
Find your place in the world, wherever it may be.
Never take for granted, your right to be free.
A time may come, and you know it will.
You will be glad that you learned... to be still.
