A Thought


Within
Our lives
As they unfold
We
Ask ourselves
From time to time
If what
We get
From life
Is that
Worthwhile.

Who
Can answer
This question
For you?

Not I.

Yet
One fact
Remains certain -
If
We never
Give time
To contemplate
On what
We are
Or
On what
God is,
If we never listen -
Then
We can
Accept
For certain
That however
We experience
Our existence
We
Do not
Experience it
To its
Fullness!

O Love! thou makest all things even
