Sonnet-A search for living on a higher ground

On Higher Grounds

by jaybird1

Our thoughts can lift us where all good resides,
may send us into dark and deep despair;
Or fill our hearts where peace and joy abides,
with tender loving mercies, healing care.

'Til we know the power of spoken word,
to harm, to charm, to lift, let goodness show;
Then much of what is spoken goes unheard,
becomes the place where vilest hatreds grow.

Our deeds provide the legacy we leave,
they help or hinder those that we may love.
This tangled web of life wherein we weave,
becomes mere pittance for great things above.

May words, thoughts , deeds lead on to higher ground,
'tis there life's greater blessings may be found.


Perhaps, a better way to live your life
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
