If I do what I do and love what I love
Will that surely be enough?
If I am what I am
Who I was made to be
In all of my beautiful intricacies
To the best of my best
Whether I am ever well known
Or remain in a state of concealment, or alone.
If I do what I love, from the heart of my heart
Does it matter if I am rewarded or lauded,
Need I be paid or famed or applauded?
When passion is found, for the things we esteem
Important, worthy, life giving, redeeming
Should we not into them ourselves throw
Fully, completely, sowing our most?
Find what is is, that you would do for free
With zeal and love and all of your being
Do that thing with all of your heart
Surely in the end that will be enough.
