If ... ... ...


If I could rid my life
Of trash that I have gathered
How light my footsteps would be

If I could clear my mind
Of dreams that have been shattered
How hopeful tomorrow would be

If I could just forgive
Past hurts that did not matter
Forgiven my sins would also be

If I could only count
The pains that I have scattered
Repentance would set me free

If my past could just let go
Of a present so torn and tattered
A joyful future for ever will be

If ... ... ...

If I could keep my head
When all around me 
Are losing theirs
And blaming it on me ... ... ...

I'd be the only one needing a haircut.

    A superb reflection at the close of one year, at the opening of the next.

    Happy new year to you, Victor ...

    1. Thank you, Linda. I think I need a haircut.

      If ... a picture is worth a thousand words ... is that why so many people take selfies on their cell phones?

      Wishing you and yours a great New Year. God bless.

  3. This is brilliant, Victor, and as Linda noted, a perfect reflection as the New Year draws near. Yes, I think there are a lot of us who feel like we're the only ones needing haircuts . . .
    Blessings to you!
