Our World to Keep?


“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
Marianne Williamson

As we struggle with complex inner feelings

Clouds in our heads can send us reeling

It’s up to us to learn as we grow

To keep our thoughts well in tow

The world is our habitat to eat and sleep

The world is our cradle to laugh and weep

We must play our role in this thing called life

To keep peace on earth and avoid all strife

 From sunrise to sunset it’s our world to keep

If we reap what we sow and sow what we reap

    I love this. We have responsibility to keep the world in balance- each of us. If we all did this -what a different world we would live in.

    Yes, it is our world to keep! It is our home! Seems we are letting it slip through our fingers with thoughtlessness and violence. Yet, I think somehow all will be well.Thanks for sharing at In Other Words.
