Opinions and Farts: Phew!

*

3 Reasons Why Opinions are Like Farts:


  1. They belong to ourself and only ourself;

     

  2. They are sometimes innapropriate to let out; and

     

  3. Often, we are the only one who can stand it.

Is Something Wrong?

*
I swore that I would, if only I could
change my life completely around.
From many time of trying, I’m now used to the dying
when you tell me my mind is not sound.
*
I look in your face, vainly search for a trace
that makes me want to believe.
I’ve heard it before, and I’ve come to abhor
your labels designed to deceive.
*
Your smiles are crooked, and your postures do show it
there’s something amiss in our sharing.
Thinking you know, I’m not status quo
without ability for the Daring.
*
My abilities – yes different, my mind – most competent
seeking out dreams – just like you.
I certainly can’t, and most definitely won’t
humble myself for you.
*
Disabled you call me, Unable you see me
Yet, I don’t fit your profile.
I make no transgression, I work at discretion –
your feigned ignorance reviled.
*
Scandalous at times, most shameful, poisoned minds
your integrity completely lost.
Stolen power is yours knowing patience wears,
at attempts to create trust.
*
Challenges – indeed, I still look to succeed
not discouraged from daily falling.
Strength I am gaining, gathering, sustaining
towards living my personal calling.
*
Chasing My Dream, Life begins to redeem
and is giving me freedom to live.
I refuse to give up, I’ll keep getting up
I refuse to be held in captive.
*
I pass now to you, a chance to renew
your desired belief in another.
I willingly stand, to help you understand
we are, after all, here for each other.

(Why Not) Reach Beyond

mountain

In this world we live in

There is always a plan,

In it’s own chaotic nature

Life gives what it can.

With humankind engaging

Conflict plays to survive

Living near it’s outer limits

Only to keep us alive.

Look beyond what we think we see

Take a breath from a fragrant tree

Touch the soil of humanity

Taste the joy we are meant to be.

In this life we live in

Breathing opportunities abound

Our dreams are thoughts are things so real

We can look around.

We know this life so raging

It’s in the way we feel

We know it’s more than human nature

We can make our life real.

Reach beyond what we trust to be

Gasp the change from possibility

Breathe new life into new memories

Love the joy we all can be.

Living true life with new energy

Loving the joy you too can be.

Who Are We?

Q: What is the most common thing
found among all human beings (life)?

A: Our Differences.

The Leader’s Creed

orchid - JonSullivan

Imagination, Inspiration

Motivation, Do;

Passionate Leaders guide us on

That’s what leaders do.

Holds the night light, sees when no sight

Helps the frightened through;

With Imagination and Inspiration

And Motivation to Do.
