We’ve certainly had our share of problems in cycles of the Past.
“History Repeats Itself” as we see time and time again.
All we have to do is read, sense, study to recognize the last
Horrific crime, discrimination, suffering, and pain.
What is the human experience teaching us?
And why must we listen to the doomsayers’ tragedy
Instead of happiness, love, goodness and trust?
Great deeds of honor, peace, caring laced through infinity
Dwell in our earth’s saga, just as prevalent.
We have to choose to remember and relive those dreams.
We must think about what is inspiring and abundantly relevant.
We can learn from past successes, ignore the troubling schemes
And bring into reality future cycles of good health and joy.
It is up to each individual what they reach for and search.
What gifts of the soul they choose to employ.
What roles of yesteryear they decide to rehearse.
We can change negative cycles into loving, healing guidance.
Recycle our beliefs and memories into beautiful reformations.
Let us giggle; let us smile; let us sing and dance!
Let us change “History Repeats…” into a positive affirmation.
It starts with each one of us and cycles forward and onward …
Forever, together, in heaven on earth, in rebirth, in laughter.
To enjoy our lives today, tomorrow, for all cycles hereafter.
For Renee and all who touch her heart as she has touched ours.
