When I rise, let me rise like a bird, joyfully.
And when I fall, let me fall as leaf, gracefully, without regrets.
And when I stand, let me stand like a tree, strong and tall.
And when I lie, let me lie like a lake, peacefully, calm and still.
When I ply, let me ply like a breeze, refreshingly, light and clear.
