The Martyr

happypeace

Come down off the cross, stand your ground

There’s no more time for fucking around.

You can’t have your cake and eat it too

Roll up your sleeves, we’ve got work to do.

This world is starving for the love you have

Quit being the electronics slave

Reach out, connect, make a fool of yourself

Dust off your “Give a Damn” from the top shelf

Open your eyes to the world as it is

Get out! Get going! You’ve so much to give.

Don’t mind the naysayers, there’s always those,

just keep on trucking, follow your knows.

Share what you have that you don’t need

Don’t give in to the excess of greed

Bloom where you’re planted from the seed

that brought you forth for you to succeed.

Get down off the cross and get to work

Enough already, your duties, don’t shirk

    Goodness, sounds like you are angry with someone-hope it’s not me (haha or in Spanish-jaja!) A good piece, though, something we all need to remember from time to time. Mom

    We intend to get the wreath over to the cemetery for Dad & Mom’s grave. If you are interested, it would be late morning/early afternoon as we have hair app’ts at 9:30.

    But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an everflowing stream. Amos 5:24
