A Poem of Wisdom
You hold a power so strong and so true,
a light shining bright that lives inside you,
to know how to use it, know what it’s made of,
connect to your heart you’ll discover it’s love
In a world where children re continually reminded of their limits through competition and comparison, it’s only natural for a child to either withdraw, or start seeking a sense of power in negative ways. We must remind our children that at our very core, we all hold the most powerful energy of all, and when used wisely, in alignment with love, a great sense of fulfilment and self esteem can be accessed, regardless of external recognition.

A spark of intention, and energy light,
a beautiful song that brought us to life,
and when we all live in our high frequency,
that’s when we can live in true harmony

will cost you, losing your energy fast,
the gift in the present is all that you need,
