Written by Meri Bennu Bey

Though we’ve never met-

you can bet

that I want you to win


Looking good

and eating right

but have you gone within?


Do you know you’re a gem?


Slow down and breathe

I know you want to achieve-

but impatience will get you

nowhere, fast.


Bloom where you’re planted

Take nothing for granted

Be still and learn

to see with eyes closed


Then with each day that passes

You’ll arise from the ashes

Anu being with new seeing-

A life filled with meaning


Humble your heart

and be genuine

I love you, Seastar

I know you will win
