Taking Stock — we do it all the time

You see, we are our own portfolio

We have a sense always of all we are

By taking stock, we learn which way to go


If we are on a way that leads to doom

We may take stock and find a better way

We have the freedom to control our lives

If doom does not appeal we have a say


If we are trying to ascend toward light

Remember that our best light lies within

No one else but you can know your soul

And it is never too late to begin


Take stock, for you can choose what stays or goes

And no way that you choose to take will close
