Gifts of Life

Beware what you ask
For it surely comes

Make sure you Ask
For it surely comes

Sometimes gift-wrapped
In porcupine skin
Pricks & pierces as you get it unwrapped
Until your heart bleeds in pain as if tapped

Unwrap with gloves of gratitude
And blessings counted profuse
The asked gifts get revealed
Deep wounds get healed

Be aware of all you ask
For it surely comes

Be Alert
For it surely comes
In ways you haven’t considered

    • Thank you so much my friend. As much as we manifest through choice of thoughts, our gifts sometimes just come from situations that seem unpleasant or painful …only because we need to shed so much we hold on to, to open up to the new gifts …that shedding is what is painful …that’s the gift wrap that we didn’t choose. I really appreciate you sharing your view, it is our thoughts indeed that we need to be aware of.

  2. I interpret this to mean that what we want, is not always actually true. Everything can have consequences or look different in reality and ultimately – be careful what you wish for. In addition, not everything is as good as it seems. Again, I love the storytelling in this. Your writing never ceases to amaze me. πŸ™‚

  3. I was just thinking about this today. Many things I have said that I wanted and in a way or another they happened. From now on I have become more carefully with my wishes. Thank you for sharing this! πŸ˜€

    Your perception is excellent.. And yes so many times life is like a rose… It blossom is sweet and delicate, and yet it’s thorns has the ability to draw blood.. ❀
