Human capacity sets us apart
Characteristic enables art
Not an attribute we can see
Quality of mind sets us free

Most creatures instinct alone
No reflection on what’s known
Gifts give us grace
Self-reflect select a face

Choices to achieve
Also what we believe
Along with ability to change
Assess behavior rearrange

Human life not in stone
The mindful do atone
Aware of this and that
Know where you’re at

Want to make moves
Mindfulness for new grooves
Traversing through dark night
Find your north brightest light

Has self-awareness helped make changes in who and how you are?

Forget who you want to be?

How do you get back to a preferred self?
