Here is a poem from my first book: Heaven is an Attitude Vol.# 1
A Glimpse of Beauty
I love my self because I’m me;
The only one who can really see.
What I really need within my soul;
So I can accomplish my earthly goal.
When I examine the way I feel;
And accept in my heart its no big deal,
I’ve learned from others that life is hard;
And I need to be constantly on my guard.
I must protect myself from the pitfalls of life;
That brings me nothing but sorrow and strife.
And so I’ve watched the world pass by;
And watched the people moan and cry.
Then I thought this is absurd;
They haven’t listened to the spiritual word,
They‘re looking for the Darkness not the light;
It seems to be everywhere not just at night.
I said to myself while inside looking;
This world is a pot of Wisdom cooking,
Cooking up lessons in my daily life;
So I can learn to transform misery and strife.
Into something, an idea, not really new;
Spirit all is spirit, Spirit is all there is;
No matter whose form it takes;
Be it yours or his or hers.
All that I need to do to make it all work;
Is to take care of myself and stop being a jerk!
If we are created as part of it all;
Then its time to stop complaining and make living a ball.
Knowing now in my every cell;
That it all up to me to make my life Heaven or Hell.
The responsibility for my life, the way I perceive;
Is always controlled by what I believe,
I need to examine what others have said;
To see how much from them is stuffed in my head.
I’ll then have a choice to respond in a new way;
To life’s constant challenges that come everyday,
These changes I make will then lead me to see;
The beautiful things I’m doing for me.
I now begin each day with love in my heart;
Please believe me when I say, it’s a wonderful start.
Now Existence smiles and showers me with love;
As I learn to create a world here, like the one up above.
This isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning
