Stuck in A Rut – Maybe!
Occasionally, it appears to me that I spend an inordinate amount of time on carping about this and/or that. Perhaps, that is a commonality with those of us who are aging. Most of my bitching and moaning is directed toward political observations, my perceived notions about the directions our leaders take us…
Today, I’m putting away my amateur political disclaimers and dwelling on the inherent goodness and kindness of the anonymous, humble and quiet people in life who do their good deeds without seeking gratification and hero worship. Hopefully, this poetic utterance conveys my feelings:
Their faces wear humble smiles
As they place their market food
In shopping baskets along the aisles
Offering assistance to those in need.
These people of simple wisdom
Follow a Deity’s message of hope
Living placidly with abiding Faith in
Charity and good will to all.
As deeds of evil project among them
They tearfully pray for love and peace
Giving freely from grieving hearts
Dispelling naysayers and angry mobs.
Turbulent times and unrest bring
Hoodlums and Saints together, each
Sharply battling the other while a
Fragile Republic awaits its future.
Only the Deity can know the ending…
If the majesty of our earth’s creation
Carries bewilderment for so many –
Please look out on your World’s Wonders!
