Ebony and Ivory

The world is black... The world is white...
Their robes were black, Their heads were white,
The schoolhouse doors were closed so tight,
Nine judges all set down their names,
To end the years and years of shame.

I'm amazed to hear a fellow human being judging others for differences from skin color, religion, to sexual preference when in my heart and mind I fully understand none of us is better than another (or without sin) to justify prejudice or being judgemental for any reason whatsoever!

Ready... Set...Reach... Accomplish!!!

 Goals are Good
Goals are to be set...
reached for...
and accomplished...
  it IS Gods will!!!!
"“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us." ~Bri

Walk a mile in my shoes...

 Before stomping my toes...
Before you chose to stomp on my sore tired toes
Try walking for just one day in my shoes
Cause absolutely nobody at all knows
Why it is I do the things that I choose

Do I forget things because I do not care
Or am I tired because my child's been ill for awhile
Next time you wonder how does she dare
Instead please consider how to help me smile 

If somehow to you I may seem angry mad or sad
Rather than judge or speak harshly of me
Just remember yourself to be thankful and glad
Cause you very well may not be as bad off as me!

Be happy and never forget 
walk in my shoes 
before stomping my toes

Two peas in a pod..

Love and compassion can change the world.
Being loving and compassionate to each other, 
makes us wealthier than even the richest on earth. 
Enjoy all the incredible experiences life has in store for you.
Our unique existence on this planet is all too short.  
Be grateful for all you have every day, 
for today might be your last chance.  
Take care to not waste time.

Spots of a Different Color

Spots of a Different Color
~by L. Risor
After noticing butterfly spots
that looked like eyes...
I was reminded...
things are not always as they seem... 
so I painted my silly rendition...
of a pussy face flutterbye...
with spots that look like kitty eyes!!!

Love and Friendship

Love and Friendship
I wish
the world
could just get along
simply forgive each others
mistakes, uniqueness, and differences,
without judgment, jealousy, or resentment.

What a wonderful world it would be!!!
