MORE OR LESS THIS THAT OR THE OTHER
OPINIONS MAY BE DANGEROUS
Knowing God: Accept the Love and Pass it on
Knowing how to please God requires one to “Be” God.
Knowing how to please others requires the same skill.
Learning how to please one’s self may take a lifetime but even if we fail, we will have come a million times closer to success than with the aforementioned choices.
Another choice: Accept The Love and Pass It On.
ONLY TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY? REALLY?
Why only two opinions to every issue?
Why only two political parties?
Why only left and right?
Right and wrong?
Good and bad?
Green and ripe?
I prefer red white and blue.
Words that rhyme with orange.
And twenty kinds of potato chips.
Kissing the lips of the women I loved and
Every kind of candy imaginable.
Think about it.
I’m not a judge; I’m a scribe
A scribe’s job is to scribble
A good reporter I must be
Never must I quibble;
Never may I spill the ink
Never should I dribble
Little opts and fancies,
ne’er to be a fable
Say what I see,
(forget what I hear),
gotta keep it straight
‘cause time is dear
And never, must I Fibble.

Competitive spirit, the will of the weak
Line item listings
Wasted moments of life without purpose
Long of tooth.
So where are they now; What purpose was served
(Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Signs of Life.)
Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.
Line item listings
Service to Others; a life now with purpose
Confidence second to
Life again moving

To Love is to Heal.
To Accept Love is to Be Healed.
Healing begins when Fear is vanquished.
Perhaps it is the other way around.
(Fear returned to the shadows and birds began to chirp.
Fear revealed itself at first light and waned as………
The Light of Love was felt with the decision to Accept.
Acceptance lit the Path.)
The Path is Today.
This is the way,
To be Healed.
Love becomes the Lover.
And Fear becomes a fading memory.
Curtis* uttered “mac-a-dang-dang”
Yep, that’s what he said
I had to stop and take a note
A statement worth a bang-bang
What it meant, I’m not so sure
I really don’t give a hang-hang
When I’ll use it I don’t know
But in my brain it rang-rang.
