circle of life

                            	(6/13/13)

LIVE TO LOVE, AND LOVE   TO LIVE
GIVE ALL THAT YOU CAN GIVE
WE ARE HERE BUT ONCE IN OUR LIFE TIME
AND EVERYONE MUST LEAVE A PART OF THEMSELVES
TO SHOW THE PLACE THAT THEY DID DWELL.

A KIND WORD, A THOUGHTFUL DEED.
IS ALL THAT THEY MAY NEED?
TO HOLD THEIR HAND AND CONSOLE THEM
IN THEIR HOURS OF NEED, IS WHEN YOU PLANT
YOUR GENEROUS SEED.

YOU MAY BE THE EARTH ANGEL THAT THEY HAVE
WAITED FOR TO LEAD THEM ON THEIR WAY
AND FOR THEM -YOU ARE THE ANGEL FOR WHICH THEY PRAYED.

WE ARE BUT A DOT! AND EACH DOT TOUCHES ANOTHER DOT
TO CREATE THE “CIRCLE OF LIFE”
NO ONE DOT CAN SURVIVE BY ITSELF- BUT AS PART
OF A MUTITUDE OF DOTS, IT BECOMES AN UNBREAKABLE CHAIN.
FOR NO ONE LINK IS STRONGER OR WEAKER THAN ANOTHER

IN SOME WAYS WE ARE LIKE A BALL – WE ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES
AND WE TEND TO BOUNCE BACK, BUT UNLIKE A BALL THAT IS WHOLE
ON THE OUSIDE, WE ARE NOT EMPTY ON THE INSIDE.
THIS BALL OF OURS HOLDS OUR HOPES AND DREAMS
OUR WANTS AND NEEDS -AND ALL THE EMOTIONS ON WHICH WE FEED.
JUST LIKE THE BALL, WE ARE HIT, KICKED, SLAMMED, AND DUNKED
BUT WE ARE STILL STRONG AND RESILLIENT.

LET US STRENGTHEN THIS “CIRCLE OF LIFE”
THIS BALL AND CHAIN, SO THAT IT WILL FOREVER REMAIN THE SAME.
