You are the only sun of your life,
and only you can make it shine
to give it warmth and tenderness and love.
You have no right to crave it from the others,
and if you feel sorted out and forlornly cold-shouldered,
those cold shoulders are your own,
and only you yourself have closed your heart.
There is no other world in you but your own heart.
The universe is yours if you would open it (your heart) to others,
but the flow is always yours, depending only upon you.
That is responsibility:
if you can take responsibility and give it,
then there’s nothing wrong with you,
and all you have to do is keep on loving
tirelessly, going out and actively forever.
