Embrace Today


We are always running

Away from the truth.

Away from what is real,

Avoiding what we feel.

We live under a veil,

A veil of perfection.

We feel we can’t break free

Yet all we have to see,

Is the truth staring at us.

With love and compassion

Telling us to break down,

To wipe off our frown.

To smile at the sun

To be thankful for each day

And love life in every way.
