I will not be love's slave,
and though I may weep, I will
   not pine.
Life is for better things
than self-made misery.
If I am to sacrifice myself
and fear not my fate,
then the dance must be with
   light feet
to celebrate each new day.
What has not been given
cannot be promised,
nor would I have it any
   other way.
