How will I know when I must listen?
My voice is strong and clear.
I barely hear the soft sounds around me.
I’ll want to understand their peaceful nature.
My friends were happy when I arrived.
I’ve learned from their kind example.
I feel powerful because I practice each day.
I don’t worry about the future now.
I see the present as a beautiful gift.
I listen to my friends because I care.
