“Today may there be peace within”

May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.

May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones,

allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us

connect with what’s most important to you

share your talents with the world.

Focus on your goals and make them happen,

trust your intuition, draw from the deep well of peace, inspiration and calm.

Breathe in strength and release your fears,

go after your hearts desires and you can achieve anything,

Live a happy and peaceful life and both you and those around you will profit.

New hopes and promises,
New wings for our dreams;
Tears jeweled our eyes;
Our adulation was almost divine.

After all upheaval and ravage,
The face of this bruised nation
Smiled like beaming stars.
We greeted democracy with
Cheerful songs.
Carried her on…
