Meditation by “the lake”  

I begin my day by picturing
a gentle peaceful lake
For my work and studies exhaust me;
all my energy they take.
While next to the lake and pondering
a cardinal begins to sing
“All this stuff you‘re stressing over
doesn’t mean a thing”

I see some ducks come floating by
and they begin to quack
“What’s important is to do your best
forget about what you lack”
The sun is rising over the waters
and gently warms this heart of mine:
“True beauty is not inside those pages
but in how you choose to shine”

All creation cries out to me
in my moments before the lake
“Better to lose a letter grade,
than your peace: for goodness sake.”
I know I have to study but realize
what nature would have me see:
“school will come to an end someday
but I will continue to be.
