Simple Lessons - A Poem


To be free,
release yourself
of the burdens you carry with you
and all beliefs that hold you back.
It’s your mind that brings freedom.

To learn,
befriend your mistakes
and failures,
never allow them to stop you
from trying in all that you do.

To love,
show the world your heart,
wear it on your sleeve,
being so open and loving
is one of the bravest things you can do.

To find peace,
stay out of the future and past,
the present is where you should be,
and it’s the present that holds the key
to all the happiness.
