It’s nice to feel free, in body and mind,
to have a strong spirit that never subsides,
to surround oneself with positive vibes,
to move through existence past what just barely survives,
to take what comes as grains and with strides,
and to share a smile and enhance others’ lives.
It’s nice to feel loved, respected, and admired,
to see and be seen, to need and be desired,
to live with passion and consistently inspired,
to work so hard and to push through being tired,
to overcome trouble without needing to be re-wired,
and to take action from lessons learned and acquired.
It’s nice to grow and evolve every day,
to learn and teach to do as you say,
to release your feelings and from goals don’t sway,
to have the strength to know when to go or stay,
to accept and embrace or depart areas in shades of gray,
and to make ambitious decisions if the pros and cons aweigh.
It’s better than nice, it’s simply the best…
After all if you don’t chase it, you choose death,
You get what you give based on what you express,
what you say, the way you act, how you react to it’s tests.
Word hard, play hard, eat well, and rest,
Be strong, have faith, and accept that with life you’re blessed.
