Connection vs. Attachment Poem by pantor of the Oaks


Attachments are the wet blanket they smother fires and always turn rotten,
Connections are the spark plugs, they need a certain space to work effectively.

Attachments are restrictive like a jail cell, they can keep you captive,
Connections are free flowing like a waterfall or a warm breeze.

Attachments are the quicksand full of expectations and most unwelcome,
Connections are wonderful surprises they unexpected and always welcome.

Attachments the seeds of discontent they choke light from creative thought,
Connections are the spice of life which illuminate even the darkest times.

Attachments are perspiration; they stink like still water and soil your heart,
Connections are divine inspiration they always give an allot of positive energy.
