(Thanks to Evelyn at Curious Evelyn Seeks for this idea. – Owen)
I see in the world what I bring to the world,
And I bring to the world what it has brought me.
I therefore color new experiences in shades of my old ones,
Perhaps deciding that what has been
Must always be.
But it need not be so.
I can live forward,
Realizing that what comes
May be something wonderful
That I could not have imagined in former days.
I can and will enjoy innocence
Whenever it comes my way
So that I may in turn
Bring this gift
