  1. Seek the light in every thing:
    kindness, understanding, love bring
    a power that lifts the weight
    of uncaring, unknowing, hate.
    A little attention, & uneasiness scatters
    rays of kindness form an aura that matters.
    Mystery of darkness where knowing begins
    is better born where knowing wins.
    Power of love can change what may seem
    pain and ill will with the strength of its beam.

  2. Oh. Caffeine. Beam me.
    Raise my expectations high.
    I am ever yours.
