If We Could Un-Edit Ourselves

Image result for neale donald walsch quotes

“If you want the best the world has to offer

Offer the world your best”

Simple enough

Except when we try and fail

Because we edited and censored ourselves down

To a diluted and compliant version

Of who we thought we should be

Disguising the spice of our mistakes

And hiding the leaven of our pain-kneaded soul

 

If we had only listened

For the sweet laughter of God

And accepted the soothing patience

Of an understanding Universe

While we were withering away

Worshiping at the alter 

Of our earth-laden opinions 

 

Anytime we are ready, the world awaits the exchange.
