Close at Hand

Close at Hand
Love, Papa.

A slip of the tongue
Says more about you
Than the words
You prepared to say.
For there is always
A sign, a clue or a tip
That indicates the truth,
In everything that is spoken.
As each word uttered
Contains a thread
Leading directly to the heart of the matter.
Speak gently,
Listen carefully,
The truth lies close at hand.
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.

Love, Papa.

The script has been written.
The set arranged.
Cast and crew assembled.
As the cameras roll
The scene unfolds
And magic becomes reality.
Life is a team sport
When each plays their role.
Yet none need ever leave your mind!
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.

Love, Papa.

Measure what you know,
Not what you think you don’t know.
Your value is measured by diversity not conformity.
It is never too late for YOU to come calling.
Love Papa
Abridged #543

Please share Papa with those you love.

Love, Papa.

Demands a shift of conscience.
A new attitude.
Distinct intention.
Immense desire.
And belief.
Not for the faint of heart
Nor the weak of will
Change may challenge all your mettle,
For none become so complacent
As those unwilling to see beyond the walls of comfort.
Move yourself to change
And become what brought you to this world.
To your final breath
Whenever it shall taunt
Fear not to throw down your gauntlet
And embrace...
Love, Papa.

Love, Papa.

If that’s the way you want to be, then fine!
Fine then....never mind, I’ll do it myself!
How are you today...fine!
Yea, I’m fine!
Are you sure?
YES!...leave me alone...I’m Fine!
Hmmm...interesting word!
Perhaps I’ll just leave you to your own interpretation...
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.

Love, Papa.

Change is upon us.
A new wind blows.
Let each respond in kind.
For none shall know,
But those who seek,
The answer to life’s riddle.
And stand before
The winds of change
To feel the breeze upon their face.
Love, Papa.

Please share Papa with those you love.
