The Legs Of Time

Legs, most of us are born with them

Some never think of how fortunate we are

When we are young we just expect them to do our bidding

As we grow old they creak, ache, and give us much pain

You and I, when we look back on our lives

Do we consider all the orbits they have carried us?

Are we pleased with that which we now see?

Friends, have we walked upon earths mountains?

Have we taken the time for our toe to touch the oceans?

If we could trace our steps backwards, would we?

Have we walked upon the backs of others

To get to the place from which today we see?

I pray that my legs can carry me to my last tick

A place where only our Lord knows and sees

Lord, I know how contrary these legs have been

On so much brimstone my feet have tread

But upon the wings of your Angels Lord

And the strength of your Holy Hands

You have always saved me from myself

Lord you have always strengthened my limbs

You have given me the time by your grace and love

The time Lord for a better reward than I could ever deserve.

(Philosophy/Poem) Wisdom

Wisdom

 

Through your wisdom you have built your life upon a rock

There is no shifting sand that can detour your feet from your door

Though man is simple, even he will seek shelter from the lion’s roar

Rejoice in the instruction from those of gray hair from your youth

The fruit of wisdom helps to keep you sheltered from the cold winds

The wise lay up knowledge for it is a well of life if you choose to drink it

 

 

The simple and the wicked do hunger and fear till the end of life

Through ignorance and ego they do stumble through the darkness

Not knowing or seeing the lion and the wolf who delight in their flesh

Knowing light is a beginnings for human understanding and wisdom

Human, enter the door of your rock house and sleep soundly tonight

You awake in the morning, through wisdom, your new day can begin
