Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

The Best You

Posted Friday, August 10, 2012

This poem is inspired by a way of being that I believe in. I believe in The Four Agreements which includes one of the simplest yet profound ideas: "Always Do Your Best"

I know you are tired
I know you are ready to quit
Do your best

I'm not asking you to win
I'm asking you to try
Do your best

This is how you learn
This is how you grow
Do your best

I respect you
Especially when you try
Things you don't know
And you...
Do your best

Imagine if today
Every day
You just did it
Your best

Imagine how many failures
Imagine how many successes
You would experience

You would be the best
The best you
That you could be
