Whether or not

                                               
Whether or not 

Whether or not we live our lives
Or we gather the passing of years,
Whether we crack the windows beam 
Warmed by the summer rain

Whether our feelings are held inside 
When we reconsider our fleeting years,
As we travel along these roads of truth  
Or the ones we know of fate 

Hold on now to our minds intent
For often it is paved in gold,
Whether we walk  this silent earth
Or be lost in the stillness of our soul

Express the worth of our own design
Before love and faith are past,
Whether we hold our image secure  
Still warmed by the summer rain
                                  By m.n.
