The Human Mind
I am as transparent as the air
I am everywhere and nowhere -
I am happiness and sadness
I am tolerance and torment -
I am strength and weakness
I am wisdom and ignorance -
I am heaven and hell
I am acceptance and denial
I am both prisoner and judge
I am the mind - the human- mind
I am sanity and insanity.

Between refusing to see and dreams,
Lays hidden- REALITY.
For what is shut-out, cannot be seen,
And what is not, is only a dream.

Follow your Star
Cherish life no matter where you are
Think of all that has been spent-Life
As if it were a star;
Take each breath as if the last
Dare to dream the impossible dream,
Hindered not by the unchangeable past;
Love life, cherish each moment...
Be whatever you choose to be,
And know, that no matter where you are,
You dare to dream and follow your star.
