• Ante Up

    Poem Commentary

    The stressor's of life are speeding up folks, these are the threshing wheels in our lives. No one is without the refining of their beliefs and values. It's all up to you. Holding onto old ways of thinking and believing can cause more pain than its worth. An old saying, the quickest way out is through... 


    Threshing wheel
    Of limiting beliefs....

    Alloys fiery steel
    Refiner our debrief....

    Strike our Achilles' heel
    Call to account our value's chief....

    Mirage's blindness boldly steal
    Grant us no relief....

    Through purifying ordeals
    As we shed off prior griefs....

    Established, long entrenched
    Faster and stronger against our hold....

    Upon everything clenched
    Shatter all that is controlled....

    Until our reality is wrenched
    Against our brains cellular slime mold....

    May all that hinders become torched
    For to corruption we have been sold....

    Make it last till priority's retrenched
    With every roll distortion knock cold....

    As we ante up
    Determined to be refined....

    For we have been loaded with cock-ups
    Desire of freedom for all mankind....

    From every harmful rotten pileup
    Until all find their higher mind....

    Everything must be shaken up
    Leave no human behind....

    Quite often we assuredly slip up
    We leave ourselves so wantonly confined....

    We offer up ourselves to this
    For we know the changing tide....

    Doing so, our spiritual-self rises in bliss
    Then no longer from love will we hide....

    Knowingly it shall persist
    For in spirit we absolutely abide....

    We can meet it without remiss
    We will bring forth all that is inside....

    Let love be our emphasis
    With courage we will reside....
