You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore, be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive God to be,
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
Keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
