Poem .It's called. The Difference!

"The Difference"

Though there

is only one

kind of friend

There are many

kinds of

friendships

Only one fox

ended up laying

the golden egg

It’s called

The difference.

But what if night

Would turn to day

Bob Marley say

In that who

the cap fit. song

Do you

understand

Why you

ran away?

You were one

that was

doing wrong?

It’s called

The difference.

There is a man

who Knows

Just whom

to call a friend

There is

another man

Who seem to

never know

Just When

To say when!

It’s called

The difference.

There a brother

who Knows

Exactly what

A good brother

Is supposed

to do

There is a

preacher

Who prays?

But just like

Bob Marley says

He is saying prayers

To the Devil.

It’s called

The difference

There is a mother

Who knows?

Everything about

Her children

There is a father

That goes

You should think

Before you had them

There a friend

That knows

Everything about

Friendship

There one that knows

His friend

Has been drinking

Behind the wheel

He goes

On to tell his friend

Let her rip!

There is a child

Who knows?

The meaning of

True Love

For his parents

There is another

Who knows Love?

Only when he needs

Help with his rent.

There is one who

Thinks is the end

Only because he is

Finished

Bob Marley say

They think it’s

The end

But it’s just

The beginning

It’s only going around

But it’s coming around

To start again

It’s called

The difference!

The Most High God in all his Omniscience , knew this day would be long before creation , that's one of my strange ways of thanking God for his blessings in the form of a human.

Hope he blesses you in that same light.

Give Thanks.

Rasta1 - it is all good, they are connected.

From what I have seen, the people of the Islands should be the teachers of the world. I know there are some gnarley ones, but you have to Love the Marley ones.

You can have it as a gift, or anyone who wants it. However, if you mass produce them, then I want my 15% (net and don't fudge the books). Now go and sell a million of them!

This painting is just fine. Has a psychedelic vibe to it.

depth of perception and the difference have a similar feel, without having nothing in common. Both inspiring.

lm...o yesterday you were taking your 15% of the top now today you are send me to kinkos lol.

Am going to take a second look at the guy with those huge wads "Onda' his jacket. I took him I love that pic.

You are a genius Chip. But we are ready for the fish , it's really expensive on my side.

That would look good on your wall. Take it to Kinkos and blow it up. It may need a color correction with more magenta, though. Have the tech do an auto color and levels. Make sure to run a small 6" x 8" print to make sure it didn't weird out. maybe it is fine like it is . . . the artist is never satisfied, right Rasta1?

Thanks bro Chip. I trust your moves all the way. Annapolis was in my backyard, forgot to tell you. Your repetition precedes you ma boy.

I literally grew up in the sea, that's where young boys during my time took the first part of their early morning

shower , then run a few miles , back to the house, rinse off , before heading off to school.

Can't remember the group of Islands but the soil there is not good for planting so they live off the sea, whaling and diving. It means a lot to me , so I am thinking you in advance.

Blessings Brother Chip.

Are you referring to the Bob interview or WD hub? I cant find WD perception of depth give me the url.

Thanks again Cardisa.

Yes from those days as a young boy, my mother would sing the matching song from Bob to instill the way she felt in us, but I took it a little deeper .

Bob songs holds a place in my life, that's deeper than probably even I can truthfully explain.

It's been years living with his music and lyrics. I have learned to use the power within his songs. Any place I ever went I took them along. If I can't take these with me, I simply don't go. This is a life thing.

So the answer is yes, to the wise Cardisa, his life and legacy quietly and understandingly works wonders for me. From the days of the original members listening to old US songs on the radio.

Hp is stopping one of my hubs being published and this did me little injustice on the inside , Pretty sensitive with certain things. It threw me off hub wise , but am fine, you did not ask!

Blessings Cardisa

Blessings rasta1 and Thanks very much, thanks more thank you may even know, but I think you do because as wd once said on the name of his hub."Perception of depth" it's in there.

I watched it over a little and , my question to you is , did you like it?

I hear a little of lucky Dube , who am listening now ,somewhere in there.

Let me go back to difference in relationship.

Hit me again rasta ,didn't catch it this time .

one Love thanks for the great read .

Bless.

Thanks to both of you guys, thanks Cardisa.

You may not believe , but then you may. Came from dinner saw the comment, saw it was Cardisa I smiled, knowing I was this minute thinking of both of you Ja in common make it easy. I ran quickly through Cardisa's comment, but not as yet read rasta1.

But the Most High God is always my judge , no need in me to falsify anything.

My mind just ran on both you guys , Give Thanks .

The contents of my thought, was in part deep, but Ja in common is suffice.

That poem was all a result of something rasta1 said , I did it -receive the message in my kinda a way. I am also really enjoying the Quantum thread so my mind is on rasta 1 a lot because I have people on the outside also reading I even got little worried because of things that I know.

I was also going to put a comment out saying , anybody seen Cardisa? Jah know!

What a sight you both are.

Now I go to read rasta1's comment . For me this is great it also answers to my mind's question.

Good things.

Blessings a great sight.

Give Thanks .

This poem has made the difference this evening. I am very impressed that Bob's influence brought such a very thought provoking piece.

We will be forever loving Jah. We will not change our minds. All observers see the same color differently, but its the same color.

The dynamics of this poem is peculiar. Difference in relationships. Never heard of this idea before.

What happened to tears, you unpublished it.
