Change of Heart

thoughts flow through my head,
as i wait to find the place where i belong,
waiting in line for a long time,
my patience slowly ebbing away;

searching for a way to find that special place for me,
that place where i can fly, the place where i feel free,
that place thats my own, the place where im totally
free is right by your side, when its just you and me;

challenges i met along the way,
embrace my life with trepidation.
but, a changed person, i am today;

suddenly the world is different,
the world is new,
the world is a place
perfect for me and you;

and suddenly everything fits,
the world seems like a perfect place,
i’m no longer alone,
and my life doesn’t seem to be such a waste;

The most powerful agent of growth and transformation is something much more basic than any technique: a change of heart. – John Welwood

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. – Leo Tolstoy
