Be Without Leaves



shine on tommarrow

no matter how long the night

i shall in selflessness abide--

must i count the beads

of selfishness

Desire each an entanglement

a distraction

from the sharing of my life.


let in my prayers  cover

my ugliness

troll like satisfactions

leave my flesh

let me shine in serenity

or i am not worthy

to polish the stars with

the wormwood of my heart.


shine on tommarrow

oh great Lord above

for the trees are dying

and so let my pride

be without leaves.

I agree, making ones own desires a life goal is not a healthy or fulfilling thing...
There is always that balance to consider...

If we are happy and fulfilled then we shine even brighter, and reflect this joy upon others.

Happiness and receiving are not dirty words...

They say even JC was married :o) What do you think? Fiction or fantasy?  Did you read the DaVinci code?
