What do I see when on myself I look?
A man that tries to live his true ideals?
A soul that's found itself some happy nook?
A lot that clearly to its life appeals?

What can I do to make my dreams come true?
Let anger just upon myself prevail?
Allow bad energy my soul renew?
Not let companions suffer my travail?

What can I do to ease another's pain?
Not let me be for him or her the source?
Veritably a constant friend remain?
Do all I can to be a good resource?

And should I try these things, my Lord, might I
A better place do leave when then I die?
