Walk With Dignity

Celebrate today, 
beginning to end,
with endless gratitude
because all the odds
are against your existence. 

Live on the edge
of your promise, 
casting forth
your tenderness
as if it is a welcome mat
laid out for each step.

Do not let
your faults and folly
lay waste to your life. 

Define yourself, 
not by your limits, 
but by your love.

So, live this day
as if it is all you’ve got. 
Rise up, stand your ground, 
sing your song. 

Cast forth your tenderness: 
lay it over the whole of life
and walk this wondrous landscape
with all the dignity you can muster.
