To teach us
It is okay to indulge in worldly rapture
And okay to let go and change our nature,
to enlighten us
That nothing but change is permanent,
And fear of failure is the real opponent,
To empower us
With the courage to banish sinful kin,
The wisdom to withdraw, and let others win,
Bring on thy flute and play melodies of joy,
Bless our homes with your baby steps, cow boy!
