Where There’s a Will There’s a Way

There are always


on my life’s way


the power fixed to willpower –

so powerless considering

the impact of circumstances.

Change is costly –

making things happen asks for help…

submission yields to harmony…

want and need must be in balance.

Obedience –

this union of wills cultivates

a way with dialogue, sharing

and openness to greater good.

Some lessons learned:

Headstrong can hurt the common good…

Process is collaborative…

The challenge inward is to change.

Where there is a will, there’s a way

includes my neighbor –

the Will is the Way.

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
