I began by opening my eyes;
I began, accepting what I saw.
Reality sang in me no lies
And we were clasped together pure and raw.
My beginning I will not reject;
Existence I will honor every day;
I choose to use my mind and inspect
All facts my senses bring my way.
The primacy of existence—mine!
Sure inductive reasoning—mine!
My being, my life, my world—mine!
