In the absence of pretense,
free to do his thing,
glide through water, search for food,
whatever the day may bring.
No need to impress the others,
he’s not shackled by that cord,
his life is simply interacting
with his Creator and his Lord.
This world and all its wonder
are seen through his upturned eyes,
his focus on the game at hand,
not the “what ifs” and their lies.
When we yearn to be offended
so we can grouse and gripe,
we miss the joys of life,
as we exist on empty hype.
What will “they” think, can I say this,
these are millstones round the neck,
tied on by chords of fear and pride
life becomes a sunken wreck.
So what’s the key to living free?
Take God at His word,
submit to Him, then start to swim,
‘though “they” label you absurd.
