Be the Change

“Let us change

our lives, our minds and our hearts. 

Let us turn

our affections from wrongdoing to God.” [i]

To talk the talk,

I must

walk the walk

To be transforming,

I must

embrace being transformed.

Believe what I say,

because

it matches what I do.

I empower when I transform,

indeed

when I transfer, I transmit.

Take it personal,

indeed

be the change.

Let us strive

to satisfy Justice and Mercy

To make reparation and amend the way.


[i] Father Judge Meditations p. 97: line 18

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
