Spirits of Freedom July 4, 2015

Freedom. Time has a way of giving meaning
to this holiday. I'm still connected to my countrymen.
Although, I may not like how this country does business.
How me being a poor man, in a country of so much wealth.
The excesses and waste of the powers that be. I hope this
mix will be a Ray of Hope to the ones that choose to listen.
May the 4th be with you! Rejoice & Enjoy!
your friend,
George

Ray of Hope
by: George Waldrop

Needed time, to grow out of my confines
Needed time, to expand my mind and scope
Needed time, to teach myself compassion for hope
Needed time, to become unbroken, to become whole
Needed time, to understand the strength of my soul
Needed time, to be in recovery, replenish my bounty
Needed time, to remember a time when I was happy
to supplying what is lacking, what has been used up
to regain my self-esteem, love and be ready for recovery
to live the act of kindness, know the power of mercy
to be accepting of everyone, open to connection bravely
to be the one to forgive, to keep today's blessings in perspective

I am a ray of hope, to the ones that love me
I bring them joy with my kindness
I show them mercy within my caring behavior
I lift them up with my personality and character
I make them laugh with my sense of humor
I cry for them when they are in need
I listen to them and care about there feelings
I always think about my actions, so they won't feel alone
I remind them of the power of mercy
I love myself, enough to show them love
I give them my love freely
I make them feel worthy
I admire them when they are strong in the face of life's insecurities
I admire them when they are weak and they teach themselves to survive

there is a love greater than us all
bless the ones who teach themselves this
bless the ones who learn to be concerned about others
bless the ones who listen
forgive the ones that don't know how to listen
forgive the ones that don't know how to think
forgive the ones who were never taught how to think
Today, I shine my light into darkness like an artist
the light for me is a ray of hope
