The Upward Climb
Don’t you wish you could be better? That your heart would be pure and you would only think good about others and their efforts.
I think this way everytime anyone is church says, “Brothers and Sisters we must go out and do our duty” (or doodie as I interpret it), and I have to excuse myself from the meeting because I am about to burst with laughter.
Or when someone is giving their heart and soul to a musical number in church that has taken a bad turn, and you know that if any one so much as looks at you, you are going to laugh all over the place.
I long for the day when I will see the world with a pure heart and will be able to sit through bad musical numbers without judgment and/or laughter. When I will see people for their good hearts and not their tacky outfits and bad hair cuts. Someday, somewhere I’ll find a new way of living….
But for now, I will just keep trying to hold it in.
Brothers and Sister I will go out and do my duty! (he he)
