A Tear is a drop of the pain we hold inside.

Just thinking out loud

Blog Posted:1/5/2013 9:48:00 AM

Why do life's Angels, in the light of day
Shed their earthly robes, and walk away

Is it, man's forgotten, how we should treat a friend
In my life's journey we had truths, you could depend

Now these truths seem blurred, all for what end
has our greed and arrogance, dictated this trend

As some seek only wealth while forsaking friends
Is this now our destiny, or can man transcend

Can man redeem the grace, we had when young
While many men hear only the devil's tongue

When the morning sunlight greets the earth
hear your prayers, what is an Angel worth?

Thank you for reading. I'm hoping words can spark my grand-children into having active conversations about the future, instead of dwelling in the present. Hopefully words won't become as outdated as conversation seems to be, but with text lingo you never know peace, light and love

I agree with you, Tom. What we had valued as truths, had lost its tender in recent years. If we could impart just a fraction of this wisdom to our children, we can count ourselves successful and rich in the eyes of Life.

Whats that saying "you can lead a horse to water but, you can't make them drink" and here I am hoping to make them read. My fortunes were to live the life I chose, I'm hoping my grand-children will have the same riches
