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.
