Family and the good in people…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about family.  Family and love.  She writes while listening to Chopin with her new computer speakers.  Cheers!

What do you stand for?
Family and love.
But what is family?
It is a uniting of spirits in an attempt to produce harmony among many.
A harmony of thought and action.
For most of the people in a family have the same ideals and goals.
There are independent ones but we can say that most of them have the same ideals.
What type of ideals then?
Ideals of the common good…in people and in action.
We should all do our best to be good people and to promote the good in others.
We as parents guide our children whom we love to be the best they can be.
And we protect them as well.
Protect them by educating them in the way of the world, and the way of the good.
Loving brothers and sisters protect each other by watching out for each other.
In so doing, they grow and mature.
And prepare themselves for that day when they are parents themselves.
If you can’t say something good about a person, then don’t say anything.
Be as good as you can be and you will attract the good to you.
Think of others with a kind heart.
And as a bee is drawn to honey, you will draw the good to you.
Believe in the good and flourish.

Meredith Gibraltar wishes all of her American friends a Happy 4th of July.  Safe travels and good company to you all.

I had a depressing day today.  But I spent about two hours writing Walk with Danger so I am happy with that.  That was in the morning.  The afternoon was hard on me.  I should have listened to Chopin.  I am trying to rest.  It is hard for me.  Never stop fighting!

The dilemma … a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about her personal dilemma.  Cheers!

 

I have a dilemma,
a personal dilemma.
I love a good dominant,
but he is controlled by evil.
Controlled in his mind.
I love him but how do I help him?
I allow a stronger good dominant
to help him.  One I trust more.
This stronger one believes in and trusts God.
Slowly I heal.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about children.  Cheers.

A joy.  A joy.
Smiles that bring tears to my eyes.
A joy.  A joy.
That is a child.
Cherished and mild.
I adore thee.
I hold you to my breast.
Oh, mine.  Cherished child of mine.
May God protect you, always!
Cherished child of mine!

The Strength of Spirit…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about the strength of spirit.  She is getting help from her conscious mind and it’s fantasies.  Like Jung.  Cheers!

A spirit is strong if it can stand to watch people suffering.
It holds itself back and watches with a tear.
But it knows that God and good friends are helping.
It sheds a tear but never lets it fall.
For a spirit is in a tear.
Do not cry, my love.
For I am here.
Hold your tears and cry later.
Free yourself and cry now.
Cry my love, cry.
It heals.  I love you.
