And so, this is the sum of our lives
Stained from rust of pain, hate and loss
Not exempted from sin or the cross
We floss away the plaque
From our arteries, teeth, and bones
Only to find them defiling
Our hearts, souls and minds.
We leave pieces of ourselves
Scattered at every milestone
In our life’s trying journey
Sometimes losing ourselves in a blurry.
Nothing is ever wasted
And all is not lost –
There is SUBLIME BEAUTY
In the jaded, faded and tainted
GREAT LOVE NEVER EXHAUSTS.
Under every stone,
In every tree and flower,
As sure as the Sun has shone,
And the stars will continue to glisten above,
Time has always shown
Humanity’s Triumph in Full Bloom.
You are your own masterpiece,
A Sublime Beauty
At your own time and pace.
A walking and breathing work of art
Forged in Life, Love and Hope –
May wisdom always reign your mind
May compassion keep your spirit defined
And the moral compass of your heart enshrined.
You are the Masterpiece of Humankind.
