A Tribute To John Sherman

Growing Into Life

When I was young, so very young
I felt something within 
I chased it all away did I
And followed all the din
Of those who led me into trouble
And made me full of hate
I joined the army, went to war
And thought that power was great

Then one day I met a man
Who showed me what to do
He told me learn to meditate
And see what comes to you
Ask a question to yourself
To find out ‘who am I’
You’ll feel the silence come to you
As you find out life’s a lie

I found out then that transformation
Is such a wondrous thing
My heart it filled with total joy
Such love it did me bring
So Now I live a life of peace
And I live for just each day
This man by name Of John Sherman
He did change my every way

There is nothing quite like the act of meditation to move our lives along the way. "...meditation is listening to God." Very well penned.

Hi There ML. You are right my friend. When one takes a look within, we find out that that what we are looking for is always there. Then life becomes so beautiful. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend...Peter
