Trump’s speech, Al Wilson’s song, The Snake, (1968) and the Behaviors of People

SO…the bottom line here in this poem is to know who your enemy is, right?  But is everyone our enemy?  No, I think not.  Are all people to be trusted?  No, I think not, not right now.  I think there’s a small percentage of people that are actually out there in the world that intend to create harm and destruction. And do so.  There’s a lot more people in our world that are ‘good’ and want to help others besides themselves.  So,  how do you judge who your ‘enemy’ is or the right person to spend your valuable time with?  How does a person figure this out for himself without doing himself or herself in, in the interim?

So many times bridges are burned because we close the door on those we do not understand or find different in color, race, creed, political or social persuasion, to name a few.  Sometimes, we inadvertently allow ‘the snake’ into our lives that wreck havoc and destruction.  How do you prevent that?

As I listened to Trump read The Snake by Al Wilson (this was a song he wrote in 1968)  I do understand that when you know someone is a liar and a thief, do not trust them…and I would say that’s just common sense.  Try to get them some help immediately from the right sources but don’t let them interfere with you or allow that mindset in your family or group environment.  One is setting himself/herself up for much pain in their life if one does not have this knowledge to act on.

But what of people, in general?  How can you tell what caliber of a person are they?  How ‘good’ or ‘honest’ are they… and how trusting are they?

The bible states, “By their fruits you shall know them” (Matt. 7:16)  That’s a great start…but some people are very sly and ‘vicious’ wanting to bring harm and hurt to others instead of helping those around them.  Take a look at the pretty snake picture below…These snakes might say they did not mean to say or do something, but nevertheless, the harm was done even though they presented themselves as a ‘nice person’.  How could this have been prevented?  How could you protect yourselves and others you love and yet, help others that are deceiving themselves and others?

Here’s a free course you can take online and learn how to ‘read’ and understand people.  I took the course some time ago and I gained a lot of knowledge to use in my every day life .  It would’ve been a great course to take when I was young in school.  So, as a way to help you…take a LOOK!  There’s many other free online courses here that will help you in any area of life.

But she had died slowly…

My neighbor died yesterday.  For good.

I was not very close to her mainly because she kept herself locked in her home most of the time.  She had a dog and a cat, too, that lived with her, or for her, not too sure which.

I wonder about people that want to leave earth but do so ever so slowly.  Sometimes it causes me to look at my own life and wonder if I do things out of balance.  People either eat, drink or other things to the extreme excess or not enough to sustain their life on a daily basis.  By the time you are my age, 65, you either have lived a good life or a not so good one-and the body shows for it, most of the time.

I do remember when I paid her a visit not too long ago.  It was during the summer months and I knocked on her door.  She allowed me to come in.  She did not bar me out.  I suppose that was saved only for her estranged family, how sad.  It was not easy seeing her physical state; she was not healthy to say the least.  Multiple problems and medical conditions too difficult to pronounce.  She did not stray far from her lounge chair much at all.  She could not and would not for fear of falling.  I gave her a dozen  fresh brown eggs and a booklet called The Way to Happiness which she politely thanked me for.

My neighbor said one of her favorite things to do was to look at the sun rise every morning.  I guess that’s one reason why I like to take photographs of the rising sun.  I, too, like to look at the new rays of light that come as a blessing out of the east each day.  And when I think of it, I’d rather look at what she did to help me-which was to appreciate life a little more and to be more active-active in helping others.

Each day there is an opportunity to change- to make life better than the day before.  To live life to the fullest.

Hello beautiful people! How did you like my thoughts above and photo?  I am very delighted to have you in my life to share my thoughts.  And thank you for all the likes I’ve received, too.  I have a lot of friends I’ve made on social media and also some followers, too.  But I would like to get to know you more, although  this platform makes communicating somewhat difficult.

So I have come up with a new game. At the end of each post I will ask you a question and you can reply in the comment below. Like today I want to know where you are from and what you like to do to help others.

 Okay. So I would like to begin:

I am from Michigan, USA.  I like to write inspirational messages and illustrate children’s poetry books that my husband, the poet, writes.  Where are you from and what do you like to do to help others? You can leave a comment in the section below…and thank you!  I appreciate you. 🙂
