Sense of Ourselves

Sense of Ourselves Empty Sense of Ourselves

Post  mikeschultz on Wed Mar 05 2014, 18:14

With big-picture thinking and whatever-it-takes action,
It is for men and women, husbands and wives, to practice
What is best for self and family and community.

Who, if one, among us is sure of our standing in life?
Who can say, “I do not fear it,” meaning to stand alone,
When others follow nose to tail, and never letting go,

Follow, as blind, the wider ways, paths most taken in thought,
Fallow ground not given to gain, fruitless and without hope,
Beyond the reach of husbandry… Who indeed would take up

Husbandry or wifery, animal, or otherwise?
Human, even. If one would allow, we are not alone,
Not so long as God endows us with a sense of our selves.
