Dealing With The World

            Lawrence J. Krips

Love it all –

the flowers,

the stones,

the men,

the old,

the self,

the stars,

the atoms,

the young,

the women,

the every age,

the every body,

hated and hateful ones,

rich ones and poor ones, 

risen ones and fallen ones,

the effervescent and depressed,

the spheres, squares and all shapes,

this very thing, the no thing, the everything.

Love them all as one as one is who they are.
