Slow Down and Look Around… Where Are We Going and Where Have We Come From?

earthIt’s our world, our planet

It needs a little support right now

Stretch out your hearts and demand it

Does anyone even know how?

Love, caring, and sharing

Uniting to become as one

How is your personal journey faring?

How do we know if we’ve won?

Do we always have to win?

It isn’t a puzzle or game

Who determines what is and isn’t sin?

Do we react just to acquire wealth and fame?

What does fame without health do for each of us personally

When it feels like everything is worsening?

Is it? Or is it measured by what we hear;

What we fear; what we hold dear; what brings us to tears?

So many questions and too few answers…

Look in the mirror, the reflection of each

Soul, person, mind, heart to reach and teach

Only what we know as truth, one at a time

About equality and how to nurture the future

How to tighten the ties in unity that bind

One to the other, lifting up the spirit of another

In peace, in support, “In God we trust…”

Don’t always be in a state of rush

Slow down and let yourself get grounded

Breathe in calmness and happiness

Let go and listen to the whisper of hushed tranquility and unity…

God Bless The United States of America

Have a happy, loving, safe 4th of July!

    1. Thank you. It’s not my usual 4th of July happy, happy, happy holiday fare, but this year the fears and tears for the violence in our world, on our planet, was pushed to the forefront of my mind and I was much more concerned and reflective. Thanks for caring!
