I pledge allegiance


I pledge allegiance to myself

And to the wonder of my birth.

I pledge allegiance to my health

And to cherish my own worth.

I pledge to serve my conscience

And learn to amplify my part

Just like a singing bowl

In which my truths are held secure

Against allegiances to greed.

I pledge myself to tend

To both the flower and the seed.

And to call all life around me

My equal and my peers

And may the great Earth ground me

For the balance of my years.
