This I Believe

I have a destiny.

I have no destiny for power,

that I should command others selfishly.

I have no destiny for wealth,

that I should be the envy of others.

I have no destiny for glory,

that I should be esteemed above others.

I have a destiny to love,

For my family,

For my friends,

Even for those who do not love me.

I have a destiny to live,

For those who need me,

For those who want me,

Even for those who have no need for me.

I have a destiny to solitude,

To seek understanding of the universe,

To seek wisdom of my heart,

Even to seek what I do not know beyond my self.

I have a destiny of my own,

But it is not just mine.
