FOR THE WANT OF

by Ernie "LastManOut" Romanco

A thought nagged at me today, sort of a realization
Now it dances in not only my mind but in my light
Awareness sometimes comes with a bolt of lightening
And other times subtlety with the soft kiss of the wind
 
I have often said thoughts have immense power for change
Especially if brought together for a common loving cause
In the last musing we brought them together with water
And over the world, we created the wonder of liquid love
 
But what of the single thought of sending peace and love
One might wonder what effect it has in the overall world
Know, all thoughts of love, peace, gratitude are never lost
Each single one changes not only the world, but also, you
 
So what was the thing nagging at me to send this musing
It was an old poem and also pieces from various songs
That for me, kind of puts things in a perspective of light
For each thought of love, gratitude,  peace, is that nail
  
“For the want of a nail, the shoe was lost
 For the want of a shoe, the horse was lost
 For the want of a horse, the rider was lost
 For the want of a rider, the message was lost
 
 For the want of a rider, the message was lost
 For the want of a message, the battle was lost
 For the want of a battle, the war was lost
 For the want of a war, the kingdom was lost
 For the want of a nail, the world was lost”
 
I don’t know about you, but as for me
I’m going to be the absolute best nail I can be
For as long as it takes and for as long as I am
The world will not be lost for the lack of my love
 
Know, each of you, everywhere, no matter who you are,
How very important each of you are, each breath you take
You all have the power to change the world with each one
Each moment is forever, be the love you are, and send it on
