The fires of life burn brightly,
and we seek to pass them on,
to teach our children all we know,
to help them on their way.
And yet within our deepest core,
there lives a truth forgotten,
that children learn from who we are,
not what we say to them.
They soak in psychic constancy,
from first breath to the last,
the open and the hidden truths;
bright light and deepest dark.
If we are sourced in love and joy,
for body, Self and Soul,
then all we offer up as gifts
will guide them on their way.
For only when we love ourselves,
can we in honour walk
and can our children see the path;
through actions, not through talk.
