Love Colored Glasses
Two women set about the wind
To travel to the great worldâ€™s end,
Each carrying a different heart;
In this way they were set apart.
They came upon a lovely rose,
The scent no poet could compose.
This took one woman up much higher,
The other said, â€śBut, the briar.â€ť
The wind then blew them to the heights;
Above the sun to twinkle lights.
â€śI fly!â€ť the one began to call,
The other was afraid sheâ€™d fall.
And so it went from day to day:
Each viewing life a different way.
One reached out saying â€śCome with me,â€ť
The other looking back to see
What dangers might be coming nigh;
She turned away from brilliant sky.
No sooner had the journey started
Than the womenâ€™s ways were parted.
The one believed the Fatherâ€™s cheer,
That there was never need for fear.
And that His love endures forever
For Heâ€™d leave her never - ever.
The other clung to the Deceiver,
Who made her heart a true believer
That trouble lurks around the bend
To bring her life down to an end.
Both were given the same gift
One joyful choice, one set adrift;
How great the one lifeâ€™s choice surpasses
When wearing Godâ€™s love-colored glasses.
