โ€œWISDOMโ€™S FAVORITE CHILD!โ€๐Ÿ˜

โ€œWISDOMโ€™S FAVORITE CHILD!โ€ a poem. a.k.a.: โ€œThe Smart Part!?โ€ Tuesday, April 24, 2018.

Thereโ€™s a PART of (each of) us – Itโ€™s pretty smart,

But, Iโ€™m telling you, (sometimes) it has no โ€œHeart!โ€

It goes all day, just watching for,

Any JUDGMENT, From โ€œThe Floor,โ€

And-if-IT-thinks that you are judging it,

It throws – a-ferocious-tizzy(hissy)-fit!!

It SCREAMS: โ€œWhy are you judging me? You have NO right; I think youโ€™ll see – That NO ONE KNOWS AS MUCH AS ME!! So (pause) go-jump-in-a-lake (pause) and Iโ€™ll dance with glee!โ€

BUT – When-the-day-is-โ€overcast,โ€ OR

The-dayโ€™s-over, And eveningโ€™s โ€œfast,โ€

This SMART PART, that weโ€™ve always had,

Starts judging YOU and gets real mad,

And tells you:

โ€œYouโ€™re nothing!โ€ & โ€œYouโ€™re no good!โ€ and โ€œYou never really, really could – succeed in life or do-a-good-thing!โ€

And – this part –

Well,

Such-sorrow-will-bring!

And make you cry – and get real low,

And-thereโ€™s-no-one-there to fend the blow –

Except THIS PART (?) ๐Ÿ™‚

Thatโ€™s right! A FRIEND,

Whoโ€™ll balance things out in the end!

When the SMART PART hear this verse,

IT plugs its ears and starts to curse,

And

Then-I-say-

โ€PERFECT-NOW-IS-WHAT-YOU-ARE, and NO ONEโ€™S JUDGING, NEAR OR FAR, EXCEPT โ€˜THE SMARTIE PARTโ€™ OF YOU, THATโ€™S QUITE UPSET BY ALL YOU DO (pause) AND (pause) WILL JUDGE YOU UNTIL-YOU-DIE, UNLESS YOU STARE IT IN THE EYE AND REALLY TAKE A CAREFUL LOOK (and see) (AT) WHAT โ€˜SMARTIE PANTSโ€™ HAS TOOK – WHICH IS YOUR-DIGNITY-AND-FORGIVING-PART, WHICH IS IMPRISONED IN-SMARTIEโ€™S-โ€™CART!โ€™ S(HE) KEEPS IT COVERED-AND-SO-WEIGHED DOWN, THAT POOR FORGIVENESS WEARS A FROWN AND CAN NOT SEE โ€˜THE LIGHT OF DAY,โ€™ UNTIL YOU TAKE A STAND AND SAY: โ€˜NOW, SMARTIE PART, YOU-HAVE-HAD-YOUR-SEASON, AND, ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT LIKE TO REASON, FORGIVENESS HAS HER (HIS) PLACE AS WELL! ITโ€™S TIME TO DOUSE THIS FIERY HELL AND SUMMON ONE MORE PART WHO WILL, RELEASE-FORGIVENESS-AND-LOVE-SMARTIE-โ€™TIL,

ALL OF US CAN GET ALONG,

THIS PARTโ€™S โ€œA C C E P T A N C E!โ€

(OF WEAK AND STRONG)!!โ€
