You tend to see me
from a past you remember.
Selective choices.

Perceptive actions,
Historical impact plays:
decision making.

You tell what matters
for you and some other folks.
Application picks.

You wish to change things
for what others deny you.
Transformation knocks.

From the heart you say
which can touch towards changes.
Growth happens slowly.

From the mind you stir
which points to holistic ways.
Do it with patience.

From within your soul,
breathes lasting optimism.
Respect. Faith. Hope. Love.
