All three of these exist for me
in just one special place–
an altar in a sacred space
within my hallowed home.
It’s a focus of rejuvenation,
reflection and prayer.
It’s my refuge, my heart,
my essential need;
A place to nurture my yearning soul.
This peaceful sanctum helps cultivate
and guide me in this life’s
chance to grow and love.
I turn to this place that offers
comfort to me, to learn compassion
and consideration and improve myself.
My Lord is there, my God, my Mother, and
all the world’s sages and saints are gathered.
They all grace this space that I’ve lovingly created–
this home, this temple and inner sanctum of mine
that heads the pathway to my peace of mind.

The laws of my life have mellowed with age
They no longer carry the same weight.
I don’t feel as if I must make a date
Or do a thing if I don’t feel like I must.
I more go along with the way that I feel
Rather than what someone may think about me.
I’m not as “rushed about” in my world as it is
For there is no rule in my day that says
I must get it all done to please another.
I have let go of many a regulatory directive
That no longer serves my purpose.
Each individual can choose their own creed
Of how to govern their lawful or lawless lives.
