It Is Therapy - Poem by Fred Babbin

Everything is just distraction
Nothing’s to my satisfaction
What can I do?
I can change my attitude,
I can change my outlook.
But I can’t change
My situation
Or the station
Of my Life
And so I write.

    Another piece of true wisdom, this needs to be widely read for the help it would bring to those who like to think they can change the purposes of God. Thank you Fred. (Report) Reply
