Take the Loving Path, by Zach Beach


When you’re lost at sea,

wondering where to go

and who is safe to ask, take the loving path.

With forgiveness in each stride,

a backpack of kindness and a desire

to do good for others’ behalf,

take the loving path.

Give freely, talk less, listen more,

and when you find that one who is quite a catch,

take the loving path.

Every moment of every day,

as you move into the future from the past,

you have a choice,

and I hope you decide to

take the loving path
