By Design

We all have the chance to

Make a life worth living

Of loving and giving

With every breath

Participation calls

Each time you roll the dice

From the cake, cut a slice

You’re in the game

That which you doubt

And that which you believe

With the same goal, to find the truth

And then

Question the truth in the same way

Because when we question

We discover

Moment Um

The young yearn to grow up

Elderly long for youth

Our choices hold the truth

To happiness

But when we make the choice

To enjoy where we are

Holds more power by far

For happiness

Gracious Thee

In everything give thanks

For you may never know

Just where that road may go

And you’ll fare well

Dentist Daughter

She will share her gum

Her sticky gummy candies

Daddy keeps her stocked
