What was that moment in my tender years
when I succumbed to the notion that love's a scarce commodity?

--was I left crying on the bathroom floor? Was that it?

--was I awakened at night by a stranger's hand
as my mother -- in some faraway place --
gave birth to my competition?

--was it the moment when my folks
walked up the porch steps -- right past the former apple of their eyes --
bearing that sleeping newborn babe?
Hush! You'll wake him!

Not that? When, then? ?

That was the moment when I -- unknowingly --
Gave up my birthright for that all-too-human myth.

--a gift from Alice, January 10, 2012
Dedicated to Peggy Black and her Team, http://www.peggyblack.com/ , whose insightful healing work uplifts the world

WHEN WE ARE YET YOUNG, HAVING NOT YET DISCOVERED THE SOURCE OF GENUINE LOVE, WE MIGHT EXPERIENCE THAT 'MOMENT', OR 'MOMENTS', WHEN WE FELT...WHEN WE ACTUALLY BELIEVED...THAT 'MYTH' ABOUT LOVE. BUT WHEN WE GROW UP AND PUT AWAY, "...CHILDISH THINGS..." WE EMBRACE THE CREATOR OF LOVE AND FIND THAT FROM 'HIM' SPRINGS AN ABUNDANCE OF TRUE 'LOVE'...THAT IS ETERNAL. ALICE, THIS AN INSPIRING WORK...GIVING MUCH PEACE AND ENJOYMENT. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
