Those lies that we tell …

The wisdom of the Elders never dims.

Years ago, my Aunt Lillian told me:

“Son, sometimes you’ll find that those folks who are smiling the widest are the ones that love you the least.”

I’m beginning to learn –

that walking in purpose

is acquiescence to being our own peace.

Many of us stand guilty of…


Being deaf to our mandate.

Pledging fealty to the lies we tell ourselves.
Letting life live us –

rather than us living life.

If your number was called, now.

Could you say what you’ve learned with a clear set of eyes and no reservations?
