From a single
Cell and eventually meets
You on the street where
You measure worth by what you
See and hear and are asked for
And you have the choice to bless or
Curse with your look, your word or work given.
Has met you
On the street now
Measures your worth by what
It sees and hears and feels
And by the choice it makes to
Curse or bless with its look, its word
Or the work it will do toward you returned.
A circle of
Response that changes worlds
By creating powerful weapons of
Love or hate with the first
Look of acceptance or rejection that produces
An outward action or reactionary turn that changes
chance meetings on the street to war or peace.
Lest you be
Not judged” is a
Challenge handed down from a
God of grace and love who
will allow you to choose your fate
And alter the destiny of others by do
And don’t, will and won’t, curses and blessings retuned.
A moment of
Time with another single
Celled soul could become the
Denominator of the condition of the
Next world by how it subtracts or
adds to the equation of the problem it
Must solve during just one brief encounter with another.
Given health with
a single blessing or
Strangled for generations to come
By a single careless curse tossed
Like a grenade at another soul just
Because of the inconvenience of a moment when
You first meet another living cell on the street.
You solve it?
