I have permission to be who I am;
To live, speak and feel with integrity.
I have the privilege of walking in freedom,
As the person I was created to be.
The permission I have empowers me
To have a life that’s honorable and whole;
It also carries responsibility
To choose and do wisely, to nourish my soul.
I use my permission to love and serve,
For life is about more than just my needs.
I walk away from actions I don’t deserve;
I choose life giving friendship, places and deeds.
