One Road



~~~

Now is not about then

A moment of the past

Now is not about when

A future yet uncast

Now is about now

And it is passing fast

~~~

Will is not about might

A race we hope to run

Will is not about right

A battle to be won

Will is about will

Getting something done

~~~

Love is not about you

That view is way too small

Love is not about the few

Not a battle line to draw

Love is about love

A love for one and all

~~~

Work is not about life

Not who we have become

Work is not about strife

For perfect there are none

Work is about sharing

The road which is but one

~~~

Now will love work?

    You are so clever!! 😍

    I believe love always finds a way. It’s the only thing powerful enough to turn a stoned heart into a sponge.

    Love this!! ❤

    I like this piece a lot, Brad. Funny how we can misread the most basic of signs.
