To You A Word - Poem by Mike Barrett

We
Have not
To wait
For mysteries
And secret rites
And things
To be revealed
To us
Before we do
The works
Of God.

NO Way!

We
Have only
To love
One another
And serve
One another
Remembering always
That the self
And the other are one.

God
Does not ask
That we become perfect -
God
Asks
Only
That we love
And serve
The oneness
Which
IT IS!

    ....So true, Mike! Man is born with frailties. So he cannot be perfect! But however imperfect we are, all of us can love each other and that is what God counts.... I fully endorse your views.... am inspired by the message! (Report) Reply
