My big brother, big sister and I .
Fourteen ,ten and I was nine,
Cried more tears then we ever cried.
Our mother had committed suicide.We'd already been through qiute a bit. We were babtized that lifes one thing you just cant quit.Our Mom committed the biggest sin.I refused to imagine which place she was in.It was the one thing I couldnt bare. I d seen alot more evil then Id ever seen of good\ We found our selves there questioning God.My brother bent his brow and gave a nod. He thought a careful moment and scratched his head.He then leaned in close and this is what he said, "For right now how about looking at ot like this Instead..?
You don't have to wait till your
darkest hour. To admit to yourself
you believe in a higher power.
It's like telling white lies ,everyone
knows we all do it. And you know
they do it too.Don't believe me?
I can proove it to you. Proove me wrong,
I dare you to. Take this dare.
Bowed in prayer,Be thankful for care.
Greatful hearts for all our mercies and despair.
Be Blessed, us all,your with the gifts we recieve.
Wealth of knowledge from lessons
in the burdens that we bare.
Our faith mirrors our existance.
A life worth living.Sharing and giving,
helping hand one good deed,
without expectation.With out even a whisper
of taking credit.An angel to guard
inpure thoughts,another for my words.
Together both in charge of my deeds.
Provide for my essential needs.
So that I don't mistake them for my wants.
The regret that haunts.Gifts of good fortune
one never flaunts.When
we fail to fullfill.No weapon or pill
upon my own self be done.
Judging no one.
gossiping upon no one. Do not listen
nor tell Any one.No false pride
Or mask to hide.Beauty comes from
whats inside. Swallow your pride
I am forgivin. I will forgive,
because we are human. Because
we live. Give what you can give.
.No less,When the cuphas been filled
it can hold no more.We've done our best.
When in error just confess.
No man alive.Him nor I ,
has the right to choose
how either of us die. Do not lie.
When I look at him and he looks at me,
We are not consumed with greed or envy.
I refuse to be his enemy,the way that satan
would like it to be, I have no hate in me.
Music and love, respect and honesty,
Wheather or not anyone else can see.Patience
understanding and an opened mind.And being
somebody to believe. Being someone
whose kind.Being somebody
that somebody can trust. Be fair and be just.
Be very wary of whomever you lust.
Look down on no one unless your
helping them stand, if put in power
don't be grand.Don't let that power go to your head
Keep it in your heart instead.And every night
when you go to bed.Bow your head and pray.
I promise if you live this way. And say this poem
every day. Unhappiness will stay away.You
will not be afraid.You will not want for anything.
You'll be pleasantly surprised at what each day will bring.
And everyone around you will see it too.
You will be sufficiantly sufficed. It's not a religion
It's called living life. It's that feeling you feel
right now inside. It won't be denied.
It's believing in my believing in you,
It's me believing you two feel that too.
You can call it God...
You can call it whatever you to.
Call it love.It's in each of us.
This power thats greater and higher above.
But its not about religion or going along
You know the difference betwren right and wrong .Your hard enough on yourself when the heat is on.And most imortant of anything at all if you absolutely HAVE to lie....
......look them in the brows....not in the eyes.
