“LOST OR FOUND.” a poem Christmas Day 2019 (Wednesday)

“LOST OR FOUND.” a poem Christmas Day 2019 (Wednesday)

What’s it all about? Who’s to say or know?

IN THE BEGINNING, we’re taught to look out for ourselves,

So we can flourish and grow,

Yet, ALL ALONG THE WAY, we’re told NOT to be too self centered,

And, even when we’re “SO GOOD,” (it seems) our names are STILL NOT entered,

In “The Book of Life,” and we stop and wonder why,

Because WE’VE BEEN SO “VERY GOOD;”

We’ll even pray and cry,

But what we need? is sacrifice to LOSE OURSELVES, all right,

Just like Jesus on The Cross or as a little babe at night,

Who shudders in the cold night air, while angels declare: “(it’s) NO sacrifice,”

For He’s a friend TO ALL CREATION, (pause) even the lepers and mice,

And, for ALL CREATION, He does This Deed,

Because some part of Him [and all of us] LOVES toBeBorn, to die and bleed,

Because He knows (he KNOWS) THE ONLY WAY,

TO AWAKEN to ETERNITY is to FINALLY PAY,

THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, the one “DOWN HERE,”

WHICH WILL F I N A L L Y VANQUISH EVERY FEAR.

“For, sacrifice makes you aware,

That LIFE around HEREis but a prayer,”

A whiff of dust and air are we,

Yet, we’re bound to exist for E ternity.

SO, (pause) IT’S really NO SACRIFICE TO “DIE,”

To die, to live, to crawl, to fly:

Simply put: SACRIFICE MEANS L I F E FOR YOU.

What’s it all about? At Christmas Time, I see it (glowingly) COMING THROUGH.

“A GIFT OF HUMILITY FOR CHRISTMAS.” a poem December 25, 2019 (Odin)

“A GIFT OF HUMILITY FOR CHRISTMAS.” a poem December 25, 2019 (Odin)

When we’re strong, WE’RE STRONG,

& WE WILL CONQUER THE WORLD.

When we are STRONG,

Strong.

A banner we have unfurled,

Declaring WE ARE GODS,

Made in “The Image” of The Divine.

STRONG. Sure. WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS; we feel FINE.

When we feel weak and sense death coming on,

That’s when we make up religions and call LIFE: “A New Dawn,

Of Civilization” to be regulated and SANE,

To keep The Strong from messing up The Temple,

But,

WITH WEAKNESS I HAVE LAIN,

And I am sure: WE HUMANS ARE GOING N O W H E R E FAST,

Or that WE HUMANS MIGHT LAST AND LAST

Or BE ANNIHILATED in The Twinkling of An Eye.

We’re strong; we’re weak; we don’t know WHY,

THIS or THAT or what we’re even doing.

I HEAR “THE CHRISTMAS DOVE” GENTLY COOing,

REMINDING US ALL TO MOVE KIND OF SLOW,

& TO NOT STRIVE TOO HARD,

For this I (kind of ?) know:

“We go up; we go down; we don’t know Why or How;”

We should just CALM DOWN and NOT “have a cow,”

BUT the cow is gently “lowing” in the stable, with manure and straw,

So, YES, even a stinky cow is good once in a while to remind us of

OUR CHIEF FLAW,

Which is: Thinking we have anything (even a little) figured out,

EXCEPT we’re pretty sure LOVE is what it’s all about.
