How Good Can It Get?

Cynthia Sue Larson shares some of her insights on life in this touching poem.

Reignite longing for the love you sought with first breath in this life;
Recall the dream that called you here, the call you recognize.

You are not what others label you, nor can you be unloved;
Your path through life is blessed by Earth below and sky above.

Even feeling weak and troubled, your words and smiles heal;
You are the very conduit by which dreams become real.

You are not the triumphs nor the troubles you or others think you caused;
Nor are you bad or evil, nor can you ever be truly lost.

The purest essence of your being is infinite, eternal love;
The quiet voice inside you is a compass guided from above.

Feelings of joy, love, fear, anger, sorrow–your true self sees them all;
Emotions come and go like words written, then rain-washed off a slate wall.

Hold fast to your highest values–the ones you treasure best;
Know that by life’s hardships, challenges and dilemmas you are truly blessed.

Your character becomes you as thoughts and habits shape who you are;
Choosing words and actions wisely has the power to take you far.

Keep kind counsel of others’ foibles, doubts, misgivings, and fears;
Knowing regretted words can later cause needless suffering and tears.

There is no way you can ever fail nor ever truly fall;
Your inner light of being will learn and grow through it all.

Serve fully and give your best in everything you do;
And most of all be gentle, kind, compassionate and loving to you.

With hope you change the future, with gratitude the past;
You heal the world when thankful for the first and optimistic for the last.

True strength comes from kindness; courage only thrives with love;
There is no greater honor than showing this is what you’re made of.
