Andy Carl Poems
A Prayer... My Prayer

The Tree of Waking Life
The tree that says with elation, 'I think I'll fly instead. Although there's but water in my roots to last me through the day,

Inside a wooden dresser That your mother kept so neat is a pair of ballet slippers too small now for your feet.

A Prayer... My Prayer
I lift my soul to the God of all nations,
and offer my service to all of His creation.
I accept my place in all that is,
and worship the beauty of my own being.
I accept the beliefs of all who are capable of believing,
but reject their beliefs as having influence on my own experience.
I believe in the Goodness of life and the beauty of Death,
I welcome unpleasant experiences whenever they arise
as these experiences make the Goodness of life perceivable.
I accept that there are things that are unknowable to men
and receive this as a blessing to the ...
