Follow the path that drives you to follow yourself —

your personality, your passions, your happiness,

— your hope that seems to blossom from your soul,

making your life one that not only reflects your mentality

but one that also empowers yourself.

So gather your broken pieces and sew your shattered path;

tie your torn essence with knots of drive and a will

to love, to give, to want;

and simply be able to exist within a world

built by your own ambitions and wakings.

Find the path that drives you to follow yourself;

leaving your footprints within its mud,

allowing your thoughts to disappear within the wind

that weaves between the bodies of the trees

singing nature's favorite song.

And though the tune may become awry

during the most painful days:

the highest of mountains and coldest of nights,

we must learn to breathe slowly

and pick up our pieces,

find who we are again through the rain

and trudge on through the storm.
