All of you sitting on your own verge
Who will step forth and exhibit some nerve
The world is not such a terrible place
It provides opportunity for all to have grace
The tears we shed the roaring with laughter
Serve to remind of a compelling hereafter
The lessons we learn sources of wisdom
We can all learn from the beauty in them
As we prepare for next step’s solutions
Let’s not forget we all need absolution
It hasn’t been perfect sometimes even cruel
Sometimes caviar sometimes nasty gruel
Are we on the verge of the breakthrough we need
Will the next 100 years bring even more greed
There’s more than enough to meet all our needs
What we need is time to do our good deeds
If we get over a “seeing problems” mind set
We might all see what’s here to get
This is a challenge for one and all
If you learn what to think you don’t have to fall
Whatever we need is surrounding us here
In this place of bliss there is little to fear
Now in this moment in a grateful way
Count all your blessings sit with me and pray
When did you first learn to see certain situations as problems?
How do you make the assessment that something is a problem?
What do you hold as “problems” in your life?
Might you see them differently?
How do they teach and wizen you?
What lessons do they bring?
How might you appreciate them?
