Gary the Poet's Pen
A Tiny Bit Of Wisdom
Here is a bit of the tiny wisdom that I have learned
Gleaned from the many scars that I have since earned,
It is wonderful when as friends, you are able to connect
Remember to honor boundaries and to always respect.
You had better learn to happy in your own shadow
People are fickle and are not always able to follow,
So sing a song and bake cookies, even if just for you
Develop patience and have something worthy to do.
You are not here to be a big boss or squelch free will
Learn to hear the quiet, inner voice of your spirit until,
There are times to share with others and it amazes me
The times I experienced lack, I was in a lifestyle so lazy.
I know not whether I will ever get to see some of you
Share in a happy song that with love and joy we imbue,
I have made many travels and trekked across the globe
I have been a box of music; for many others an earlobe.
When I think of each of you, I try to ask the Lord for grace
So that we may meet him and sing a hymn, face to face,
If there was aught that I had against you, it is now forgot
If I could be a flower for you, it would be a forget me not.
I hope that if there is an old John Denver tune a playing
You would think of me with joy and remember this saying,
I know not whether it is country roads that lead me home
Wherever I am, I shall always be singing and writing a poem.
