By Purpose, By Joy

it is time

to gather

to filter and reduce

to expand

upon the joy

that ministers

to see wih clarity

free and freed from tumbled

thoughts and things

time to simplify

with touch of loving kindness

to self

to what has served

time to pleasure art

to clear the path

to creativity

it is time

by purpose by joy

Truer Words

It’s ok, worry not,

I know youas others do,

Though little comfort for you

In this faith professed,

Kindness known and shown

By actions, words, so gentle, 

Counts my knowledge of you

As a friend well blest.

It’s alright,

Dismiss the errant prophet,

Harbinger of doom and gloom,

Unjust,

Self-righteousness in judgement,

Weak in loving,

Shames all faiths and none

As judging must.

Smile a while

At one who has ill feeling,

Be sad for them for truly sad they are,

For goodness’ sake,

A grievous wound they

Pass as godly loving,

Mistake intentions,

See and god forsake.

I pity them,

Their lonely isolation,

For who could friend

A fellow frozen thus

In testament of oddly old, distorted,

Bereft of mercy, passionate to curse,

Seeing only what they see within self,

Mirror’d words to darken and presume,

Trust instead in testimony of love and friendships,

Truer words and kindness lighting, faith resume.
