Heritage

Heritage – a striking word
Is something that we all have
Others will ponder
~
My children reflect
They know the good and the bad
When I am gone they will see
Remember the truth
Of the way I live my life
Inspires me to wise choices
~
Do not speak rashly
Those words will cut the heart out
Of the little ones
~
Trustworthy envoys
Will bring healing to the soul
Joy to the hurting
~
Intellectual
Emotional, Spiritual
Consider these three
~
Process with integrity
This relationship journey
Seeking truth on every front
Do not be afraid
~
Thinking, feeling and loving
Integrate all three of these
With those living close to you
You’ll discover joy
~
Loneliness can be a gift
I’ll surface the heavy rocks
That are weighing down my soul
Direction can come
~
Do not be afraid
To ask the real hard questions
You were built for joy
~
Those of us who know the pain
Who still live in it today
Can listen and understand
And offer you hope
