Source of essence place where formed
Learned habits beliefs observed norms
On a course with their set of things
Programmed before we grew wings

Gracious thanks we owe them
Without birthing we’d have no kin
As we get older awaken grow
We choose over decide our flow

They may resist our rebirthing
Not ready to bless our emerging
That’s when resolve is tested honed
Building character for when alone

Love them anyway
Don’t let resistance in the way
Fear is their holy cross
They would rather be boss

Can you love accept who they are
Honor their treasure though from afar
Thank acknowledge foundation they gave
Let your quest continue seek all you crave

Have you consciously chosen each value, ideal and goal you own?

How would new choices show up in your behavior and activities?
