' Understand - Poem by Linda Ori

There are consequences to everything
Intentions have their purpose -
So don't deny
Or justify -
Just accept what is;

Momentary flights of fantasy
Highlight the mundane world
Of real life,
Of real strife -
Without dreams, we die;

Every little now and then
This life bestows a gift,
A brilliant light
To set things right -
Fresh life to a dying heart;

Be grateful for the blessings bright
Accept them as they are,
They're sent to you
To see you through -
They are not yours to hold......................

Understand.
