There is no substitute
for kindness
for choosing kindness
for staring in the face
of adversity
with love
for choosing to remain calm
when we would like to be angry
to choosing strength
when weakness
sometimes seems
a better friend

there is no substitute
for confidence
in ourselves
God
the universe

there is no greater beauty
or magnet
than self sureness
patience
self composure
and the tenacity
to remain who we are
deep inside
no matter what
and to answer to
and from that place
only
