Smiles and tears pave the path to eternity,
for each passing moment holds a lesson to be learned.
For both teacher and pupil,
victim and aggressor.
There is no good or bad.
Only life experiences meant to develop our souls.
I intend to live my life with integrity and and purpose.
With honesty as my torch,
compassion as my guide,
and forgiveness as my shield,
I commit myself to my spiritual evolvement.
And as a fellow traveler,
I welcome you with open arms and a loving soul
to our experience.
