touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.

I am with you still in each new dawn.

yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
