There is no logical order to this:
The only one responsible
for your own happiness
It would be nice if we could go through life
being validated for who we are;
we expect that from our parents,
look for it from our friends
and work for it with our colleagues.
Chase the inner-most elements of
your own self-respect
in spite of men, places and doctorates.
Let your heart be filled
with all things, people, and places
you love most.
Allow them to become your pathways
of study and celebration,
but never a means to end.
