“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

― Dalai Lama XIV

They say to listen,
To follow and be quiet,
But I say be free

Break away from the chains that hold you,
The words of criticism and denial,
To a place that says ‘you’

The worlds shadow will lift away from you
You will see new light of ideas
and Joy

Break Free.

"Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end."

love the message! The first stanza is a different length than the others, but it's still very good and I like how at the end it's a single line that says "break free!"
