Dealing With Matter

Sometimes words skillfully spoken
To play the slots insert the tokens

Pull the handle and play the dare
You really believe the game is fair?

You believe all is fair in love and war?
You believe in what you’re fighting for?

Lets take philosophy just a little deeper
Climb the mountain that is a little steeper

As you’re playing this game of win and lose
How comfortable do you feel in your shoes?

Do they fit your feet just like a glove?
As you walk in them are you full of love?

Do you offer your heart to your neighbor?
Is friendship the thing you truly savior?

Each question is another roll of the dice
Before you answer ponder them twice

The game is as fair as you choose to believe
Is not war something that we all should grieve?

If we fight for right what more can we do?
The longer you wear it the comfortable the shoe

May our shoes fit our feet like our souls fit our skin?
Let us all meet each stranger with a heartfelt grin

Let us show our neighbors the beauty of our love
Let our lives represent the good Lord above

What you believe is real is what’s on the platter
For all is an illusion when dealing with matter

    It meant so much to me to read your poetry today Michael. I hope each day takes you to greater heights in your writing endeavors and in your life. Thank you for your kind comment. Don't you worry about commenting to me it is more important to me that you get your schooling completed and that you have quality time with your family. Love, Carol YF4L
