Tact

The thought that isn’t yours

Is not invalid for that fact.

When contention opens sores,

Can we be firm yet act with tact?

Ev’ry Tongue

Your story isn’t mine,

But I think that is fine.

I say God speaks in ev’ry tongue,

Those near and far; the old and young;

The atheist and Hindu, too;

Christian, Muslim, Pagan, Jew;

With each, I feel a grace is shared

And aspects of the Truth are bared.

I feel there’s much we all could learn

If everyone could have their turn.

If we make space for all to live,

We also grant that all may give.

This doesn’t mean we will agree,

Or that all is futility.

It is, however, best that we

Allow for everyone to Be.

In Spirit

Beneath the Cross, I find my home.

Yet wherever you may roam,

I hope you find the peace you need,

That you may be from mis’ry freed.

You may not share my home with me,

And find some other family.

But on the day we all return,

We’ll find we all have much to learn.

Yet if we seek, while we are here,

To love and help and lend an ear

To live with kindness openly,

Kin in Spirit we will be.

Just Be

Don’t be afraid to just be you,

And to your intuition true.

You needn’t play by other rules

Designed to please exclusive fools.

You needn’t choose a camp or side,

When in the Way you do abide.

Learn from everyone you meet,

And take your pond’rings to the street.

Enact your values with great care,

Be kind and generous and fair.

If in love you make your way,

There’s nothing anyone can say.

Embrace your weird, your zen, your bliss

For there is peace and joy in this.

Don’t let those others say you’re wrong.

Accept yourself, and you’ll belong.
