Within ourselves there is a way,
That takes us through every day.
That shows us all where we should start,
And begins within our beating heart.
This lets us know we are alive,
And says to us, we can survive!
That we can choose to be true,
To ourselves and the world in view.
That we can move and lend a hand,
Helping those with no strength to stand.
But what if we are weak and lost,
And feel that caring has a cost.
That we cannot walk for ourself,
But just sit quietly on a shelf.
Just watching as the world go by,
Afraid to give another try.
And yet from that place, we can see,
That within our heart, our love is free.
Love has wings and is light and fast,
So throw it to all those, who go past.
