Never Do What You Resent
Music: Luke Dillon.
|Never do what you resent,
But give your choices your consent.
And what you would no longer choose,
Have the courage to refuse.
Giving is a gift that one
Gives oneself when all is done.
For to be whole, one must be part,
Well connected through the heart.
A gift should be for love or beauty,
Never solely out of duty,
Never out of guilt or fear
Of seeming something less than dear.
So choose your chains, if such there be,
And keep your sense of sovereignty,
Doing freely out of love
What else might fortune's bondage prove.
