APPEAL:

listen (please, please);

     open yourself, wide;
          join (you, me),
     connect (us, together),

tell me.

do something if distressed;

     @dawn, dance;
     @evening, sing;
     read (books,$poems,stories) until peaceful;
     study if able;

     write me if-you-please;

sort your feelings, reset goals, seek (friends, family, anyone);

     do*not*die (like this)
     if sin abounds;

keys (hidden), open (locks, doors), tell secrets;
     do not, I-beg-you, close them, yet.

          accept (yourself, changes),
          bind (grief, despair);

     require truth, goodness if-you-will, each moment;

select (always), length(of-days)
