Believe in yourself!
Believe God made you right, perfect
for who you are and when you were born—
there is nothing wrong—are you alive?
If “Yes,” say “Thanks!” and go help
someone in the few minutes we get
on earth to make an impact!
Pray to something big. Live good days,
and if you feel a lot of pain—
bearing a cross can yield a rainbow from
the rain! No pain and no gain my sweet,
I gave a few bucks to a dentist once to
pull out my teeth! Grateful for that, and
some doctors’ expertise.
But let’s take all Western Medicine with
a grain of salt—not alcohol! Let’s be a little
tougher, know it’s okay just to let
nature heal us—
Something that can’t be done very well
in a metal box firing down the freeway at
seventy miles per hour.
We have to live on the ground a bit to truly
see the vision—see your power!
“I have a vision,” the sober say when they
wake feeling good like a child at Christmas
We deify too many things, but relax:
It’s exactly as it seems!
Words are the glue we spew to fill the seams.
The talk of equality nothing compared to
(It’s a Martin Luther King thing!)
95 theses tacked on a door to rise up
and live while alive, avoid the place
where too many flies fly—
Keep as clean and sanitary as you can
without obsessing and calling your
doctor now, then and again and again.
Trust your body! Believe in yourself!
Take up your bed, Lazarus!—or Bob, Robby,
Ricky and Mike—Darla, wouldn’t it be darling
to don the smile of the healthy while the
health appeared to be falling.
“Fake it ‘til you make it!”
Read a Henry Longfellow poem, better
yet a positivist Ella Wheeler Wilcox rant!
“Optimism” reminding us that when you
speak health, God will hear your words…
And make them true.
