Poem. Want To Know?

Want to know?

Want to know if you are maturing nicely

Slowly becoming

The very best person you can be

Listen to this song

See if it brings any memory

Pay attention to which part of your body

It hits you the purest.

It’s just a song about Love

If you are a good person.

One that can easily be Identified through the lyrics

of this song as it sings above

You would not wait until you hear a songs like this

To show your Love.

Or for songs like this for you to remember the Love shown

to you by those great people in your life

Like your parents, your husband,Your wife, your family, your friend,

your children.

Let the good you possess, the good that's in you

Be that constant reminder, that in doing theses things are actually

building that true human foundation to be

the recipient of future Love and understanding,

Happiness, that's yours to be shared In your golden years and beyond

You will be fortified with nothing but great love and kindness

all around

Virtues that you will be so well deserving of.

Insuring yourself that you will not be one of those who will

have to be locked away somewhere, in some nursing home,

Hoping, instead of knowing that you will be comforted

By those that are your own

Instead of being thrown at the mercy of strangers, to whom you are

Also a stranger..

Simply because you have shown disregarded, and have chosen

to live selfishly

Letting songs like this, attempt to touch that part of you, that you have long

buried, deep inside the emptiness and rebellious nature of the life you lived

in the past .

Let us now , the one who are alive and well, let us confidently

assure ourselves of a better tomorrow.

Not hopelessly expecting that those temporary good times we share

while hiding from our truths. saying that to err is human.

Let me remind, that only God can say this.

Don't hope that somehow, miraculously from somewhere,

that forgiveness and mercy will to go ahead and follow up blindly!

It surely Won’t!

These are the planting seasons , that are here now,

while we live and give with all our hearts and minds sincerely.

While we are alive, and are aware what causes misery.

Let the golden years be well understood and not taken for granted.

Because it will always be : As a man soweth so shall he reap.

The evil that man do live back to them.

Go ahead take a peek at all the others before you,

so you can tell.

Only then will you know if you are

"maturing nicely"

One such way is to see if you remember the last time your consciousness

reminded you to call and thank, or pay a visit to all those

who you know have before and have helped you greatly in being

that person you are to now in the position you are at this time.

So do you really


Want to know?

Greetings my dear "AE" and thanks for reading and your heartfelt comment. That is exactly the reason for this piece. Just to share a memory that is sometimes so easily forgotten. Usually those people are our parents, and as we grow and get it becomes friends and wives and husbands,etc.

I firmly believe, and I read where you said your Mom and that's what you Want,but you sacrificed anyway. Always sweet. I believe that there were so many times in people lives that there are things that they needed, but didn't have a clue have they would get it , and were left with the only option, that people usually leave for Last and that is prayer. They prayed and received that which they prayed for and almost instantaneously , forgot all about God or the person and simply believe after times have passed all is well and forgotten. The Bible is an entire book is what I say.

Thank you "AE" Keep on , keeping on.

Bless.

Greetings Sky, This piece reminds me how easy it is to forget ones who have helped you along your journey. Many times my Mother sacrificed to give me something i didn't need but wanted. I hope i said, " Thank you " enough before she passed away. There are still many to thank..We are all connected, least we forget. Cheers

Thank you sincerely mljdgulley. This is the reason for which these words are written . The gratitude's that we owe those in our lives,those around us, and ourselves.

It seem to be so clearly missing . I did not have to travel far to notice this it's all around me, and this is may way of pointing it out.

So I applaud your ability to recognize and be able to smile.

Thank you, Give Thanks .

Bless.

Beautiful. Thank you for giving me a smile on this cold misty morning. Being thankful of those who have touched us is something my brother and I were discussing not 15 minutes before I read you poem. God does have a way of reinforcing His being in our midst.

Thanks so much catalysnstars. To me it feels as if you saw exactly what I meant to portray writing this, your words I, i Will make then back at you

"With sincere thanks."

Oh wow. I was in an unusual place when I saw this and it brought me back to that familiar place of comfort and knowing that I do want to become the very best person I can be. We stream to life uselessly, most of us, climbing the ladder and competing with each other vehemently. I know we lose sight of how we are all connected and thus should move forward together. Well, thanks again. I liked it, and it helped me.

Bless.
