"The only thing you take with you when you're gone is what you leave behind."

Tell Me...Just Asking...



Tell me does carrying that bitterness
Anger and resentment "feel " good
Does it give you peace , is it
Something we need to teach
Our loved ones and children...

We all are here together united
In our humanity and struggles
There is a "higher' self which
Lives in all of us , waiting
To rise above pettiness...

Can we all walk together
Sharing our own personal truths
I know you can teach me
I also can open your eyes
To something you are blind to...

We are like a flower waiting to blossom
Spilling forth endless beauty and peace
Love is our gift to ourselves
Encompassing all mankind
Joining us in truth and wisdom

What will you sow when given the choice
The endowment you leave lives on within
All you have touched in this brief moment
Will it be reflected in love and joy
Or destroyed in anger, hatred , resentment

Find you strength
Let your legacy
Be LOVE...

Barb What a beautiful poem...Yes I agree, seething anger destroy everything and one must not live with that forever....from the legacy of peaceful time of love one must buy peace...Nothing is as demeaning as hate, anger and resentment…. and nothing is as empowering as love...

Thanks for sharing a nice song too...
