Norms

To go my own way

is to follow a path,

the path requires

practice and commitment.

 

To be on the way

is to be in the way.

The path is a way

to find the way.

 

To follow –

asks my heart

to attune,

tells my mind

to listen.

 

Ignoring the path:

dooms harmony,

destroys trust,

does harm.

 

I am not alone.

At turning points,

shared wisdom

promotes Us.

 

My way is unique.

The way I walk

is part of the continuum

of possibility.

 

To walk hand in hand,

to be shoulder to shoulder,

I must pay attention

to the way.

 

The way it’s done

is not absolute.

It is open to change –

I will never be the same

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
