Abundant Life

Why wish for a trickle of water
When God grants waterfalls?
And why visit only the “dime store”
When man’s made shopping malls?
Why ask for vanilla ice cream
When flavors are grand/galore!

There’s not a thing wrong with vanilla,
But, gee, there are so many more!
Why settle for ten great minutes
When I can have hours and days?
Why strive to earn “B’s” as an average
When I can conceive of straight “A’s?”
Why limit my friends to close ones
When others have so much to give?
Why think only “here” is the best place?
There are wonders wherever I live.

Is the rose fairer than the daisy?
Does the daffodil take first prize?
Who cares? The questions are crazy!
There are Gardens for feasting our eyes!
Does the Rainbow censor its colors?
Does Gravity choose what falls?
Do you think Love cares who shares it?
Infinity has no walls!
I can have as much or as little
Of whatever I dare, my friend.
When I put myself in the middle
I am never aware of an end.
It’s all right here to enjoy …

With abundance the world is rife.
I’m a fine, deserving being
And I’m treating myself to Life!
