In a Perfect World

In a perfect world
everyone's visions
would come to fruition,
but of course that couldn't happen
(given our nature)
and thus would end up in contradiction.

Perhaps it's because
we ask the wrong question,
thinking world means You or Me.
When in actuality
(when analyzed thoroughly)
World means We.

From Words - Everything

Words are a peculiar kind of magic.
Alone, they do nothing of themselves,
and yet through the Great Orchestrator
they became everything else.

Wander With Purpose

Life is a journey,
with a destination
deeply embedded;
the smell of the roses,
all the sweeter,
if you know where you're headed.

The Opposite May Be True

An urgent message
to the children of God,
be wary of your loathing!
That person whom you condemn
might very well be
a sheep in wolves' clothing.

In Regards to the Universe

'Tis a blessing and a curse
to wear the gavel and the gown,
and run the bad guys out of town.
But in regards to the universe
and every soul placed on the scale -
I am glad our justice fails,
and all but a few of us
(for better or worse)
receives not what we
most assuredly deserve.

Inspired by the writings of Demetrios Trifiatis.

P.S. I was going to share to something different this morning, but after stopping by Demetrios' page last night I got inspired with something unexepected.

Convictions and Visuals

The difference between
the carnal and the spiritual,
has as much to do with
convictions as does visuals.

The Carnal's favorite epithet:
I will believe in it when I see it.
Living as a mere fleck in the universe
his chances of vision grow steadily worse.

While Spiritual cling to holy writ:
I will see it because I believe it.
With the number of faiths available,
all options, it seems, are on the table.

NOTE: Another oldie that I've never showed before ...

7. Nothing can make him 
8. If he doesn't want

Prayer before meal
Prayer after meal
Archangel Raphael
Give us direction to our journey
Protect us from all evil or darkness
May he present our humble petition
To be blessed by Eternal God
