Get Used To The Blessings

Gifts Of The Peaceful Spirit

The best thing about contrast is that it helps me
To see black and white clearly when I have the need
To see through the eyes of those who see their own fear
In the eyes of their enemies as I appear
To be one of the two things. In truth, I am freed
From my own misperceptions if I dare to be.

And indeed It’s a blessing to take it all in.
Sorting through what life offers is why I exist.
Mediocre my life has been compared to those
Of my race whose ambition and excellence shows
That I should not have been born. The thought is dismissed
At the height of each moment of living in sin.

I thank God for the moments – each and every one,
For that space within each one is where I release
What is not of use to me and begin anew.
I’ll rely on God’s guidance in all that I do.
Can I not truly say I believe in world peace?
Peace within my own person is the solution.

I’ll get used to things working out. Often they do.
Wholesome ideas flowing and perfect timing
Are what is natural. It is not the reverse.
Thinking otherwise things can only get much worse.
Surely nothing can interfere with my rhyming.
Doing what I enjoy keeps me from feeling blue.

Things Working Out

Getting Used To Goodness

Definitions of craziness merge into one
Simple test of unworthiness. It’s pass or fail
And proctored by the populous. Heaven knows this.
If you let others dictate the terms of your bliss
You will never be blissful. You may now exhale.
The long wait for approval cannot be undone.

Your unworthiness proven by circumstances
That you have no control of, you’re not at the top
Of a game that seems not yours yet in which you play.
Innocent and without fear, you do what you may
To keep up an illusion with no way to stop.
It is hard then to evaluate your chances.

Being crazy is childlike because it is fun.
We place judgment on actions based on how they feel.
Feeling natural freedom to feel as you please
With good timing and ideas flowing with ease
Is for you all quite normal, natural, and real.
Getting used to things working out no one should shun.

Following your own guidance when society
Imposes its conditions takes courageous strength.
Let it grow within you as an expectant child
Of the one you once were before it was exiled.
Your life is but a movie that’s running full-length.
You are actor and audience and all that be.
