THE ATTENTION


There's positive life forces:
Nature, animals, children
Grandchildren, art, music
Sisters and brothers

There's negative life forces:
Smoking, coveting, cynicism
Hate, sleeplessness, greed
Criticism and disloyalty

There's a child in this old lady:
Smiling, tender, singing
Innocent, dependent, ignorant
Crying, laughing, loving
Mommy and daddy

There's a woman in this child:
Survivor, stoic, understanding
Intelligent, graceful, pretty
Spiritual and believing

There's the past it's not now:
Good girl, incest, beaten
Hiding, afraid, flinching
Promiscuity and perseverance

There's the now that's not the future:
Questioning, thinking, weighing
Initiating, protecting, staying
Working and sleeping.
