Windmills of The Mind
To seek your truth, while still respecting mine,
dream dreams you have the power to acheive,
the best advice which I may now opine;
(impossible if you cannot believe)
dream not those dreams a-pickled all in wine.
To understand yourself and, hopefully,
fight against injustices presenting.
The mirror of your soul consults for free,
(unbearable, unless you are dissenting).
Foe in your reflection? Stand, don't flee.
To appreciate life, waste not of your share.
Bear mild discomforts bravely on the chin.
With dignity, uncomplaining (such is rare),
unbearable though it seem; prevail and win.
Sorrow? Seek solace then from those who care.
