Measuring Up

DSC_0019

numbers

on the scale

numbers

on clock

our lives

are based on

numbers

it’s a very sobering thought

outnumbered

by numbers

is that who

we are

do numbers

tell us

that we

have come far

or not..

in life

that seems

to give

those with

high numbers

the number one spot..

Played a Song for Me

 

IMG_7450

in conversation

i found out

he is musically inclined

this man child

of parents

perhaps someone’s

brother

i don’t know

but not necessarily meant

for me to know

but what i do

with what i see

i see much more

than what

a picture can portray

easy to see surface stuff

i see a need

for caring, for compassion

for kindness

and going the extra mile

and offering up some prayer

from someone

that is a mother..

yes, i do know their names.. when i see this dog, my heart melts

Thank you for playing a song for me…
