Fable? - Poem by AHO Speaks
Every experience in life has to start with an event
Seldom given and more often just sent
Circumstances we like to put place
So as not to expose what would be on our face.
Life is not a mystery filled with just time
It is truth and justice shared with yours and mine
To be fair and care for those we never met
Those who are not part of our genealogical family yet.
To give also has a meaning of sacrifice
Something significant like yourself and not just to be nice
An awareness that life is a gift from that which is supreme
The gifts of soul, free will and choice; and the occassional dream.
Each of us is the custodian of these gifts to be used
Gifts freely given and none can be refused
Other gifts are to be yours and mine
The gifts of life for our journey of time.
The gifts of sustenance to go forward and not retreat
To take care of self and others and even those we do not meet
A self recognition to return part of what was given to you
Even a single acknowledgment will improve your view.
This is not the 'valley of tears' as some would imply
Rather a time to be productive and contribute and not have to cry
Perfection not expected nor a requirement for life
But repentance and judgment for those who cause strife.
