“CONFIDENCE!” 👼

“CONFIDENCE!” a poem. June 23, 2018. We SAT today!

They were “wealthy” ranchers, with steady gait and gaze,

Born into OLD MONEY – good livestock did they raise!

They got up REAL early; worked hard – with a “logo;”

They-were-confident-and-decent! (?) Until – “Year of No Go!”

No-crop-appeared-’twas-drought-oh, dear: THEIR PROUD & STEADY STRIDE,

It DID give way – to lack, we say: Their SURENESS took “a ride!”

You-know – There-are-MANY families, who have some “rustic roots,”

They’re CONFIDENT, so confident (pause) with their caps and boots,

And buy and sell and marry well; believe in GOD – THEY Pray – and tell,

Others: “IF you’re clean and good; God rewards you – like HE should!”

NOW – CONFIDENCE may-be Heaven-sent,

Even-if-Heaven-never-meant,

To bestow a single cent,

[Without THAT money, clothes they’ll “rent!”]

In a World of hopes and dreams,

You-need – CONFIDENCE – a lot, it seems,

And Where Is Yours? Perhaps – in Church?

Perhaps – in Family? YOU NEED NOT SEARCH,

TOO VERY FAR TO FIND THE THING,

WITH-CONFIDENCE-ATTACHED! – I bring,

You-fine-glad-tidings-of-great-JOY,

Money (?) Strength (?) or-perhaps-your-boy (?)

Or – your daughter-or-your-wife (?)

WHERE’S YOUR CONFIDENCE in LIFE?

Perhaps ANY-OF-THEM – will be just fine,

But, I-think-they-all-don’t-have-much-shine!

They’ll tarnish-or-fade – in the ev-e-ning sun,

Where’s (your) confidence now – my wayward son?

WELL, DEAR ONES: Here’s-where-my-confidence lies:

IT IS IN NON-CONFIDENCE – IN-A-WORLD-OF-LIES!*

fin. ❤

* – But do not cry – for my NON-SOUL / Or PRAY to-My-Creator – in some Dark Hole! / For trusting NOTHING – or no one all-way / It’s means: NO DISAPPOINTMENT! (pause) I-enjoy-The-Gray! 🙂
