Bells and Light

Bells declare that church is starting,
Or dinner is ready,
Or that my cat is coming
Down the hall.

I like bells. They are nice.
Bells are pretty.
That must suffice.
Ring your bell,

Wherever you are.
Ring it out,
Loud enough
So all can hear!

Ring so that
They will know
You are alive!
Ring it now!

Then jump start your heart,
And dive right in,
Into life, with all it’s currents.
Don’t be swayed

By popular opinion.
Do your thing
Just the way that only you
Know how to do.

Be yourself!
Shine like the sun!
Shine, so that the whole world
Can see your light!
