The Plain Truth

If you, like me, were taught

-maybe not in words-

your worth depends on what you do

And if your gut, like mine, tells you

-not in words-

you believe this to be true

Then, in spite of what we tell ourselves in words

we, both you and I, have a situation:

Our worth, yours and mine, is a doctrine

we try to prove with our words and our deeds

Instead of the plain truth we live out each day

in the safety of each other’s arms.

Grace and peace to you this day…
