on my life’s way
The Truth restores
my heritage and my birthright.future
It’s not searching the unknown past
or finding the recent future.
looking gently, hearing kindly,
speaking softly heals all the time.
opens the past to my future.
Thus I realize, what was, can be –
I make a careful difference
Some lessons learned:
justice without mercy is unjust…
peace without compassion is chaos…
the challenge forward is to change.
Back to the future
is my here now –
I am and I was and I will be.
