The Law of Life

This is a poem I’d written some time ago. It gave me pause when I was going through some old writing. As individuals, sometimes we have more power than we credit ourselves.

“The thing to fear

is fear itself,” someone once said.

What is more to fear

than to fear yourself?

You can break

and take

and never give back.

You can make

and shake

and create a new fact.

Never underestimate what God gave you

because what every you create can destroy you too.

This is to you, you, and you.
