Poem. "Once Bitten"

“Once bitten”



Stirs up the

Awareness

Of that great

comforting

Feeling

Of being

Twice shy.

You have traveled

this road

Sometime before

This is not

The time or

place

You should

again want to

go there

To indulge

to taste

a little more.

These waters

Are looking

real rough

There will be

No time

To think twice

No time for

regrets

Nothing to lose

You have

already been

"Once bitten"

The roads

to hell

Are paved

with golden

excuses

Cry no more.

of being

confused

Keep your

feet

on the shore.

Know that

There is

always

Tomorrow

Where everyone

In existence

Will take

the day

to count their

blessings

The gates of

Babylon

Are usually

open

Heed no

warnings

Come on in,

Indulge in sin

You are not

Expecting

anyone to

suddenly

Knock on your

Door

You were

"once Bitten"

The shyness

Becomes

A thing

of the past

So different

So strange

You Won’t

recognize it

Like you did

Before.

You’re present

Have become

The past

Being

in the same

Place

You have been

Sitting.

To be again.



“Once bitten”

Bless. It's one of the very best ways that I know to first show that you appreciate and is in charge of that beautiful body that the Most High gave you, and then comes the goodies.

It's a great way to cleanse the bod of toxins and other impurities.It depends on how long you fast for and also what you use when you fast.

There are many things that people would put in the water, you can read up on that but I use lemon.

You can fast for as long as you wish or until you receive the desired results. Don't hurt yourself doing it , it's a spirit , mind and body working in unison , kind of thing.

Take like a gallon of spring water and squeeze a lemon in it mix it up. Start with only one day . Don't be hurting for food. But three days are the recommended amt of time when I was mr. recommender if you may.

I hope you can remember when we first met and you were speaking about Vegan. I told you about a man called Carlton Frederick, in his books he spoke a bit about fasting.

Bless "AE"

Thanks "AE"HE HE I use that pic because it explains the idea quite easy. But it pertains to everything that , you will later be beating up on your self for.

It's A cliche One bitten twice shy.

I am fasting and i have gotten some beautiful enlightenment I will soon share.

Always a pleasure "AE" you are one of those people that I will never forget. It's not the big things in life that makes all the sense it's those little well meant, sincere and meaningful ones.

Fasting is great ! Am in and out so I 'll be out for a few , just a few.

Bless.

Such beautiful words from such beautiful people , this could surely make the difference in the life of a Hubber.

I thank both you sincerely. Yes you can that this from one that has traveled those roads and stands tall in bearing witness to that famous saying which so many have fallen victim to , and that's only because of selfishness. If you again ask me why I will say-Once bitten twice Shy.

Sincere thanks Cardisa. I see you change pics. According to Peter Tosh-Coming in Hot.

Bless.

great to see you rasta1,where have you been I tried asking for you.
