Affirmations Dismissing Limits - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I probably have said some things I shouldn't.
I probably did some things others couldn't.
They probably can say the same thing too.
Let us undo...
Reactions of bitterness done,
With thoughts to still carry through!

When I evaluate someone...
Help me stop judging them by looks,
And by what they have or have not done!
Help us all go through that same process.
And lift our minds...
To a higher consciousness!

I don't profess to be better than my brothers.
Or look down on my sisters...
As if they are less than others!
I want good health...
And the wealth of satisfaction.
All this senseless negativity,
Has been too long the attraction!

Affirmations dismissing limits.
Remove those limits from us this minute!
Help us all find ways to cheer...
The reasons why You have us here,
On this Earth!
And make that clear...
Dear Father!
