Fearing Obstacles They Do Not


Those taking risks with a faith that stays,
Aren't the ones begrudging with a moaning heard...
To blame others for what to them occurs.

Those taking risks and doing this,
With an awakening of consciousness...
Are the first to confess 'and' with candidness,
The facing to embrace their own consequences.
Since...
Fearing obstacles they do not,
Stop...
To whine about what it takes to have them erased.
And,
Fearing obstacles they do not,
Drop...
The making of excuses to change their fates.

Those taking risks with a faith that stays,
Aren't the ones begrudging with a moaning heard.
To blame others for what to them occurs.

Fearing obstacles they do not.
Are the people.
Fearing obstacles they do not.
With faith.
Fearing obstacles they do not.
They chase them.
And not from them to run away.

Those taking risks with a faith that stays,
Aren't the ones begrudging with a moaning heard.
To blame others for what to them occurs.

Fearing obstacles they do not.
Are the people.
Fearing obstacles they do not.
With faith.
Fearing obstacles they do not.
They chase them.
And not from them to run away.

Fearing obstacles they do not.
No.
Fearing obstacles they do not.
They chase them.
Fearing obstacles they do not.
Are the people.
And with a faith that remains to stay.

Poem of the Day

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
