Who Are The Blessed? - Poem by Sandra Feldman

Blessed are those,
Who fear no fear,
Who are not afraid,
When Life is here,
Falling apart,
Trembling, decay,
When people cry,
Or cannot pray.

Blessed are those,
Who cannot feel,
Who go through life,
Not knowing where,
Love will reveal,
It's holy prayer,
Nor do they care,
To show their bliss,
Just unaware,
That Life exists
With pain or care,
They are just there,
An Empty Stare.

But, now beware,
Of those that feel,
That all of Life,
Is a bad Deal,
They know that joy,
Is just a dream,
That's washed away,
Down any stream,
That overflowed,
And wipes away,
All that you loved,
A certain day.

Beware of those,
That think and squeal,
And won't denounce
The World's bad Deal,
The Steal, the Politician's bite
The Rotten Beings of the night.

We cannot change our destiny,
Or go beyond what cannot be,
At least, out thoughts should remain free
Like in a prayer, a Ship at Sea.
With great compassion, Humanly.

    Sandra, I think you really do have great compassion and humanity. I have been thinking lately about people and their lives. Everyone has problems, sadness, disappointments, and many people have really tragic or extremely difficult lives. And yet, I wonder how many would say that they wish they have never lived?
    Your poem echoes Jesus words on his sermon on the mount, right? Here are some of them in a modern translation:
    Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the Kingdom of the heavens belongs to them. Happy are those who mourn, since they will be comforted. Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth.
    These are not empty words, otherwise Jesus would be a liar. So we need to
    1. Fill our spiritual need with the right stuff
    2. Understand what the Kingdom of God is, and what it isn't
    3. Find out what it means to be 'mild-tempered' or meek, and what it means to 'inherit the earth'.
    Jesus also said, with God all things are possible.

    Interesting and thought-provoking write, especially like the last stanza which is very philosophical. Great write Sandra. (Report) Reply
