Drink And Be Free

by Cecilia Lynne1

A Drink from the Fountain of Life
Offers ongoing change
Having a desire to Drink
And a willingness to exchange
The old for the new
Just keep on drinking a little at a time
Waiting and seeing preparing the mind
Looking forward to new life sublime

If you mix the water of life
With ever new pressed wine
Over time it will refine
Enhancing the taste
To experience the New
You will have to believe to receive
That the fountain of life is true.
And that the sip of the 'Water of Life'
That you took
Is found in the 'Good Book'

No mystery! No need to thirst!
Especially when you are at your worst
For that drink from the Fountain of Life
Can root out a considerable amount of strife

Life will go on as new life is reborn
That can lead to fame and fortune
But I would suggest that one should
Progress and continue to drink with caution

Take one day at a time.
Remain active and continue to climb
Stopping on the way up
To take a 'Drink' from the 'Fountain of Youth'
Using Jacob's Ladder as penned
Praying someday to hear an 'Amen'.

As we grow older we often become bolder
Sometimes requiring a helping hand
Seldom ever looking for approval or reproof
Somedays we're even a little bit aloof
Seeking more answers that evolve into 'Truth'

Always to remember that very first 'Drink'
Aiming at putting ones 'Life in Sync'
Drawn from the Fountains of Life and Youth
Giving revelation an element of Proof
A new  beginning to sufficing Thirst
That begun a quenching of a Life long Curse

And when if at the end of ones days
We can give our "God Thanks and Praise'
For letting us 'Drink' of the 'Water of Life'
That was bought at such a very great price
Bringing rest and peace to our soul
For all of mankind both young and old.


What and how much we 'Drink' makes all the difference.

In researching the scriptures the "Water of Life is found in the Bible 722 times.
I have chosen to share a portion of Revelations 21:6

" I will give unto Him that is a thirst of the fountain of the water of life freely".

It is my prayer that blessings will be sort and found as a result of my sharing from the heart.
Have a happier and healthier 2022.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
