With A Proving That Is Done


There is nothing like doing,
With a proving that is done...
To anyone believing,
Someone else is in need...
Of a few lessons to be taught.
With a thoughtlessness that has begun.

Only to have it discovered by others,
Who has acquired those life experiences...
Enough to teach, reveal and convince,
To never take for granted appearances.
Especially the ones that conceal,
A suffering through hard knocks felt to feel.

And keys one has received,
Required to unlock many doors once blocked.
Obtained after going around them a lot, nonstop.
With perseverance and persistence.
And not with words to flip from lips,
Spewing them out to drop.

There is nothing like doing,
With a proving that is done.
And not for the purpose just to stun.
But to leave anyone who may be left in doubt,
An opportunity to review an agenda.
If time is given to them to figure it out.

'Hey!
I thought you said...
Teaching these lessons would be a breeze? '

~I too believe that.
However...
Who knew we would come face to face,
Unprepared to brace ourselves...
Against the winds of a sustained hurricane?
Who threw together this useless lesson plan? ~

'Shut up and keep running.
Maybe our doing of it will not be noticed.'

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
