A Hero's Life

(With apologies to Richard Strauss.)

I AM the hero of my own life.

I can choose my battlegrounds -
or those my Soul sends me to.

I choose to accept the challenges
and rescue my inner child
from all the barriers that I,
my ego-self,
have thrown up around
my pure, innocent original self.

Daily I can do the work.

I march to the drumbeat of my Soul.
