Here Today; Gone Tomorrow

You won't understand; it's not about her hair.
It's about what was already meant to be there.
She was happy with her reflection.
Not attempting to cause a deflection.
Yes, it's just hair.
And much of it is still there.
Not one to cry in despair.
Always caught up in warfare. 
It's just hair.
Not like she was losing solitaires.
But the feeling of time that's been.
And through it, all what was seen.
So many things that were meant to be.
Yet, He knows how to make it worth it, you see.
You won't understand; it's not about her hair.
It's about what was already meant to be there.
It's really not about her hair.
It's the realization that nobody cares.
Plenty of wisdom in colour and pain.
Knowledge no book can train.
A blank page absorbs everything.
The black just assumed all was well-meaning.
The hair that fell
witnessed things that it couldn't tell.
It's not fear of the colour white,
but all that is no longer on the platter to delight.
Blinded by a carefree world.
One by one crumbled as they unfurled.
You won't understand; it's not about her hair.
It's about what was already meant to be there.
Here today, gone tomorrow.
Like hair, even sorrow.
Money comes, money goes. 
Don't be so certain about things like those.
The only thing certain in life is death.
The only thing, would you really want to bet?
White or black.
You cannot slack.
Unless you want your territory to be attacked.
It's just the cycle of life.
Love, joy, peace or strife.
Happiness and smiles to give.
How could you have it all unless you forgive!
It's not just the process that has been painfully slow.
And in it what was lost, all the more.
You won't understand; it's not about her hair.
It's about what was already meant to be there.
It's just that by worldly standards,
she's been climbing the ladder backwards.
What's here today will probably not live to see tomorrow. 
Life and death, happiness and pain.
How can one guarantee we'll still remain sane?
Sanity and madness, modesty and vanity,
Anxiety or wrapped in blissful serenity.
Sickness and health, wealth and poverty, 
Maybe some trouble with social inequality.
Family and friends,
Someone to trust and depend.
Loneliness and depression,
Or just walls and furniture to adorn.
Jewellery and fancy clothes,
but nowhere to go and put on those.
It's just that they were here today, but it's already tomorrow. 
Today became yesterday a long time ago.
How did it become yesterday?
And with it everything just went away.
Dreams and life,
the aftermath of choice.
What's here today could be gone tomorrow.
No point wailing then in sorrow.
You won't understand; it's not about her hair.
It's about what was already meant to be there.
She's not crying about it.
But looking at the deeper implications within it.
Nature wants to write her out.
Just like everybody else who she didn't doubt.
It's nature's way to a slow goodbye.
Too late for those dreams; they've passed you by.
It's really not about her hair.
It's about what's not already there.

        About 24,000 as i’ve been Averaging 40,000 Words each Weekly
        Blog Post.. hehe.. Surely a Tsunami of Free Verse Poetry always
        Coming From Holy Creative Spirit.. Indeed.. “SonG oF mY SoUL”
        The 7 Year Effort So far of 8.4 Million Words on Average, 100,000
        Words a Month and This Week i Am Celebrating One Subchapter
        of that Effort that i name “Nether Land Bible”… Yes in the
        Spirit of John 14:12 for True i do Mean
        Breathing the Spirit of Love
        one Will Surely Find Now in
        Matthew, Chapter 5, Verses
        3 Thru 11, the Beatitudes
        In Deed of One Body
        One Flesh of Love
        We Too Will
        Breathe This Way Now
        In Arts of Giving Sharing
        Holy Creative Spirit Flow as well
        Always With Least Harm.. it makes
        me sad to Hear that you are Pretty
        Much Miserable and Feel Weak on Your
        Own but i do realize you Mean the Spirit
        of Love That You Find In Jesus is what Moves
        You Forward… the Choir Director Was Out one
        Sunday at Church so i decided to Volunteer from
        the Back Pew and Lead the Choir that Day… my
        Wife Katrina took an Audio Recording of it with my
        iPhone.. i hope it helps Lift Your Spirit and Brings a Feeling
        of Jesus Love In Your Soul For When i Sing it i do feel “Here i am Lord” that
        Spirit of All Unconditional Love Coming through today that is my Gift for You…
        “Nether Land Bible”.. is arriving By ‘Labor Day’ with 6 MiLLioN Words in 51 Months..
        Considering that i often Write as Many Words on someone’s Blog in Holy Creative Spirit
        Flow More than Folks write in a Week… Smiles.. this is probably Enough of me to See in
        one Week
        hehe as
        What almost
        That Entire Collection
        of 8.4 MiLLioN Words of
        Free Verse Poetry in 84 Months
        is.. is simply Copy and Paste Collections
        in Breath of Holy And Creative Free Verse
        Poetry i have Freely Given to Others as Prayer of Gift..
        it’s nothing worth any money of course but each and every
        Day i do give away my Soul With Empty Pockets Dear Friend..
        i emptied all the Money in My Wife’s Purse when i retired as she
        takes care of all the Finances as i finally saved enough Money for a Rainy Day…
        A Day
        When
        it only
        Rains Love
        A Day That is no
        time at all Just a steady
        Flow of Love that Never ends
        this is the Lesson i Learn From
        Jesus most to put into action wherever
        i go in the Language others understand most..
        What i find Most Folks Understand best is a Language
        oF LiGHT A Language of Love my Language of God and Jesus too..
        And Yes in the Four Years and Three Months i’ve Been Writing “Nether Land
        Bible”.. i’ve included all the Gospel Mass Reading of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and
        John and additionally all the other Readings from Mass through all those weeks
        without Fail.. invariably those Verses Synch Like Magic With my Life often i find
        what i write about reflecting the Verses before i read them each week God Breathes
        My FRiEnD
        God Breathes
        Best in the Poetry
        That comes from this
        Holy Creative Spirit Flow
        You have it never give it up..
        i had one spurt at age 13.. one
        spurt at age 18.. and Now i Flow
        With Creative Holy Spirit Effortless
        as i rarely ever plan what comes next..
        i never planned to Name a Bible myself
        Ever Since i Reached 53.. 7 years ago then Now
        When i Arrive Usually God Provides a Title Within me my FRiEnD..:)

        1. OBTW, Just to Clarify a Previous Conversation..
          Katrina my Wife was with me when i Googled
          Your Blog to Use Two Hands to Write this
          on my Desk Top as Your Home Page that
          has So Many Photos of You.. Katrina
          Said who is She.. She’s stunningly
          Beautiful.. i said that’s the Young
          Woman We Thought Looked like
          Himali And She said No i’ve Never
          Seen Her Before.. she only thought
          one Photo Looked a bit like Her.. She
          Was Definitely Looking at Your Mom’s
          Photo before but true you don’t Look Like You’ve
          had a Miserable Day in Your Life but Of course
          The Soul Breathes
          Within We Must
          Always Dig
          Deeper
          to See
          the Challenges
          We all have to face
          No matter How Stunningly
          Beautiful We May Be or Not…
          Smiles.. my 94 Year-Old Great Aunt
          had one of the Most Beautiful Smiles
          and Soul at Less than 5 Feet tall All
          Bent And Crooked with a Walker and
          then at 47 my Soul Breath was gone
          didn’t matter that i could still leg Press
          500 Pounds Without Soul i hardly had a breath for a Word
          She could go on Forever for the Flame Was Still Bonfire within
          And all She said was She can’t wait for the Next adventure with 100 Percent Faith..
          Honestly Every Word She Breathed Sounded Like Poetry Every Word A Song of Her Soul…
          Still lives in me.. Smiles Dear FRiEnD This is How We Really Don’t Die When We Pass away..:)

          1. That’s so true…..our legacy remains within the hearts and minds of the people who remember us fondly. I agree with you there. She must have been an amazing lady with a cheerful interesting personality. The flame within…. I try to keep it burning always. Feed myself with spirit food. Sometime I let my thoughts and feelings get the better of me. If I could only listen to my spirit ….I’d probably be the happiest and most peaceful person on earth filled with agape love.

              1. That’s a nice thought.
                Keep giving what you’ve got.
                Since this is whatever and all.
                From the wreckage when I crawled.
                All that’s left.
                From the rest of me that’s messed.
                Keep giving.
                Nobody wants to be taking.
                Still, this is my contribution.
                My only possible retribution.
                Spirit food.
                I believe it’s good.
                Smiles and thoughts…..
                Essentially, all I’ve got!

          1. Actually my Entire Blog is Literally the Longest Epic Long Form Poem
            at least technically as i’m just doing it for the Love of the Present Gift
            This Loving Breath in Flow.. anyway the Whole Blog is “SonG oF mY SoUL”
            Not only with 8.4 MiLLioN Words.. Written in 84 Months but also Fully Illustrated
            with Over 100,000 Photos i’ve taken and Over 10,000 YouTube Songs to Accompany
            it too and again it is comprised of all the Free Verse
            Poetry i have written in Response to Literally the Words
            of Thousands of Other Folks Globe-Wide in the Last
            7 Years as a reference point Being From India You’ve
            Likely Heard of the “Mahabharata” as that Effort of
            1.8 MiLLioN Words Took Centuries of Effort and
            Innumerable Unknown Authors now to complete
            Then Yet the Spirit of their Souls in Poetry Do Live
            on no matter what their Label of Name is then We
            Still Read their Soul Today literally Thousands of Years
            Later so much Greater than a Pyramid with only a Pharaoh’s
            Named Inscribed and this is what Upsets me Most About Church
            Is they Worship the Name of Jesus Like a Pyramid With Initials but
            Do Not Actually Act on the Lessons of Agape Love For All that JeSuS
            Brings Free For All in the New Testament Still.. Anyway.. Haha it would
            take way over 100,000 Pages to Publish all of that Effort and Close to that
            too with even the Subchapter of “Nether Land Bible” in 51 Months of Effort,
            About 60,000 Photos and 6,000 or so YouTube Videos too and Truly without
            the Word Press Classic Editor it would be Literally Impossible to Do on WordPress

            Memorial Day Weekend of
            2016.. True i keep

            At Large And In Smaller
            Ways of Creativity Now too..
            And on Top of that i needed
            A Hobby to Rest my Feet as i’ve Probably
            Mentioned more than once i am a Public
            Dancer Who has Danced 13,616 Miles
            All Around A Radius of close to 200
            Miles Where i Live and Yes i am
            the Only one too who ever
            does that too with
            Smiles as where
            i Live it is still
            very
            very
            Conservative
            overall indeed too..
            but yes.. indeed the Words
            of Song Give my Feet of Dance
            Rest as Dance of Feet Give my
            Hands Dancing across this Keyboard
            Rest now too but true no matter what
            i do i am always Dancing And Singing this
            Flow of Love indeed even when i Dream so
            True it takes me forever now to do this but it is
            so easy as i only focus on the Present Gift of
            Each Holy and Sacred Step and Word of the
            Spirit Holy And Creative of Love That Flows through me Free!

            As You Might imagine out of those 1000’s of Folks i have visited
            only around 16 have remained Strong Enough not to be overwhelmed
            by this Hurricane of Spirit Wings it’s always a bit lonely doing Original Creativity
            As by Very Nature of the Activity there is no real Target Audience from Before…

            i suppose that is
            Why God Divided
            God Into all of Us
            As one Love
            God
            is

            i walked A Beach alone
            For Miles at 21 when i was
            Lonely and Miserable Within too..
            When i came to that Conclusion
            i had Empathy For God and felt the Sacrifice of what Love Means

            Giving

            is Love

            And Truly

            Giving is Never

            Sacrifice only Love That
            Eve on the Beach all alone

            Bone in their Soul But True We Cannot
            Dismiss Our Shadow Side or one Day We
            Will Find that Lust and Aggression as Master over Us…
            And No Not
            everyone
            Needs
            to Share
            that Art
            But it is
            Important to
            inspire some folks
            to Get in touch With
            Their Shadow and Master
            It and Never Be Ruled by
            Diseases of Addiction that may Come with that..:)

              1. As We Master Our Passions
                We Master Love Greater in
                Harming Others Least As Well As Ourselves For
                Even As Jesus said at
                Least Clearly As Reported
                In The Gospel of Thomas
                to Know Thyself Complete Is the Reward Innate for Even Science Shows We Reflect the All that of Course is One Word

                1. Last msg had a typo
                  (So NOW* I know 2…)
                  I haven’t read gospel of Thomas….but I live in Chennai….and He’s accredited for a lot to do with Christianity in south India.
                  I do believe agape love( and faith ) are the roots of a healthy tree….and a bird that flies freeπŸŒ»πŸŽ€πŸŒ»πŸŽ€πŸŒ»
