“To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.”
Henry David Thoreau
Today, I know nothing of humility
I know nothing of gratitude.
Today, I know only anger
I feel only fear.
Today, I will look for Peace
I will call upon my own God.
Today, I will lend my back
I will offer my hand.
Tonight, I will sleep well.
Tomorrow, I will grow.
