When I look with my eyes,
As you see;
Shapes and colors.
When I close my eyes
and look with my heart,
I don't see
I feel the wind around my ankles,
The earth between my toes,
The heat of the sun,
and the salt water dripping from my eyes.
Always in balance,
I won't lose my courage to fight if
I keep a cool head;
Keep a tight rein on my fiery temper;
Stay down-to-earth, and
Let the breeze blow to clear my thoughts.
If I keep these elements in balance,
Maybe I won't lose
Between my head and my heart.
