Ten Sentiments

An Acrostic Poem

Ten Sentiments

If you think you can’t change the world, it means you’re not one of those who will. (1)

Do it with passion or not at all(2); which means find your passion and let it consume you.

Life doesn’t answer questions. It simply gives you signs.(3) It’s up to you to decipher them.

The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are, and liking what you find. (4)

Change your thinking, or you will always recycle your experiences.(5) The choice is yours.

Once you realize it is a mask, it is irrelevant how lovely the mask is.(6) Show yourself.

You can’t change your mind and won’t change the subject, you are therefore a fanatic.(7)

When I accept myself as I am, I can change. That is the curious paradox of growth.(8)

You must make the choice to take a chance if you(9) want anything in life to change.(10)
