Find yourself a purpose and a goal
Into which you pour your energy,
For there is satisfaction in a role
That makes of life a gift that few may see,
Yet helps sustain the heart's ecology.

Nor ought your purpose ever be control.
In giving, one relinquishes one's keys.
No breath can be the wind that moves the whole,
Even as your best may stir the breeze.
