train for life

August 25, 2009

I can be bitter or bold
Bold to find another way
Or bitter looking at you
I will make the choice
I can blame others
It will take my energy
I can choose love
It will open up a wellspring
A surprising love shows up
You say “I tried that”
I learned that trying doesn’t work
I train to focus
On loving the other ones
Who are closest to me
When I choose to train for life
There is a strange mystery
In choosing to love others
I see I am loved
Look around and see
In the world all around you
In quiet, love speaks
