I See That Serrated Edge

I see that serrated edge,

and will raise you two fists;

your bite is only slightly less sharp

than your ย bark.

Being snagged along its teeth

isn’t my favorite morning ritual.

Getting even is in the cards.

But if I don’t swallow

my thirst for revenge,

it may swallow me –

what hollow grasping!

No matter where the chips fall,

I choose to take the high road and fold,

so bark away.

I don’t need to follow suit!

Odds are,

while you win the battle,

I will win the war.

    It can be a hard, long, lesson in the learning. God bless you–love, Caddo

      Now to back up the words with deeds… *sigh* ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Robert Rife says:

        Sometimes it starts here, though. Besides, we’re more likely to wed words and action from places of what Jonathan Edwards calls “religious affections” than from the grunt work of “should.”

        How do you argue with a guy who has cool quotes stuffed up his sleeves? ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the truth behind the quote, though – like the Jason Grey song about the Christian life being ‘more like falling in love than something to believe in’…(See, I can quote, too! ) *wicked grin*

      • Robert Rife says:

        Haha! Jason Gray is a wonderful artist.

      • melodylowes says:

        Isn’t he? There are a few of his songs that I have wished I had written because they say what I would have said …except he actually wrote them, instead of thinking them. |Is there a lesson there for us, hmm? ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thanks for reminding me who I am ๐Ÿ™‚
