We only have one light

The light goes out
If we never talk in another language
If we take the same path
If we do not look for different
If we ignore the beauty of nature

The light goes out
If we choose the same colour
If we watch the same TV
If we speak only to ourselves badly
If we stay inside the mind

The light goes out
If we lie in bed all day
If we eat only beige
If we look at nothing new
If we play the same tune

The light goes out
If we judge others
If we always look for wrong
If we become a constant critic
If we never laugh

The light goes out
If we never break a smile
If we do not walk a while
If we never skip
If we never sail away to another shore

The light goes out
If we never love
If we never share
If we never have a pet
If we never colour our hair

The light goes out
If we never have a friend
If we never are alone
If we never brave the wild
If we never change a thing

The light goes out
If we never write
If we never paint
If we never roll down a hill
If we never bathe in mud

The light goes out
If we never take a risk
If we never jump a stream
If we never climb a tree
If we never build a thing

We only have one light
It burns bright now
Keep it bright
Always be the light

Yin yang

It’s all a question of perspective.

We can wallow in the dark, search for the criticism, hand out the judgment, be negative. Be the Yin.

Or we can choose to look for the light.

Both light and dark exist, but searching for the light brings us the magic of life.

Be the Yang.

Yin or yang? Like everything in life, it’s a choice we have the power to make.
