how much we have

how much we have                  June 3, 2016
it is good you think about more
than romance
because most of our life
will be responsibility
it sounds so sweet
the boy from the banks of the nile
and the girl from san juan valley
how romantic
to travel the world to each other
but we are only poor
and not so young anymore
if it is truly destiny
a plan of God, not man
that is a larger burden to carry
not a lesser
for if God wills there is away
but we shall have to make it
for if God gives one to another
that is a greater duty
to protect, to keep till death and beyond
for there can be no parting
and there is nothing romantic in poverty
when children must be washed and fed
it is good that you think about more
for there is always more to think of
for the poor
yet, how much we have
to have prayer
and clothes and shelter
and most of all
each other

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
