THANK GOD FOR THOSE WHO THANK GOD FOR YOU

Thank God
for those
who thank God
for you. . .

And as for those who won’t,
perhaps best to forgive
and maybe don’t
complete forget,

but still plod on
in the face of their objection,
even when you’ve crossed
the ones
who your essence just don’t get,

so that
all they do
is try to make you someone else,
for they seek
a being in your place,
sown from
some other sod
than you. . .

And then,
behold the wonder roses
you raise up,
and tend them
all with care
to protect you again
from any kind of thorn
including mean, unnatural words
or views
from any human,

And, maybe in another realm,
the ones who did not get you
shall at last receive
the clarity of view
to see anew
and understand
exactly what you were
and everything you meant.
