A Good, Confident Morning - Poem by mike ruthenbeck

I think, that with this new morning being,
some wonderful thing I shall soon perceive
unknown to me, what next I'll be seeing
surely a good thing, I choose to believe
in something, some way, in some shape or form,
regardless of sunshine or thunderstorm
some seed was planted, years before we met
so now with our present introduction set
the seed has grown to be a fruitful tree
which I may climb and eat from eagerly
having received open invitation
pot luck to this new days dedication
with full belly, and the mind well rested
the need affirms to again be tested
in my work, I of't remain un-bested
as the rolling wave, deep and un-crested
for to the sea's rhythm I harmonize
to a dance yielding neither laughs or cries
as of coarse, today, there also must be
something taken away tyrannically
my house could be robbed, war could be declared
a flu could pass from the spliff that we shared
in every moment we are tested by God
endeavor to exist, magna cum laude! ! !
and in this way I may see all the good,
and know all the ground on which I have stood
