What is it about humans that set us apart
The crowning characteristic that enables art
Not a physical attribute that we can see
It’s a quality of mind that makes us free
Most other creatures act on instinct alone
They do not reflect on what seems to be known
Gifts that we have that gives us our grace
Being self-reflective and choosing our pace
If we make smart choice and want to achieve
A key to our progress is what we believe
It’s also about our ability to change
To look at behavior and rearrange
Human life is not something written in stone
When you become mindful you begin to atone
Awareness of this and awareness of that
Enables a knowing where you are at
And when you want to make some large moves
Your mindfulness enables creating new grooves
As you traverse your own path through the night
The north star of mindfulness reveals your bright light
How has the lack of self-awareness hindered you in the past?
How has it helped you make changes in both who and how you are?
Are you always mindful of who you are being?
What do you do when you forget who you are?
Are others helpful getting you back to center?
