Poem from Kym Gordon Moore’s book Title of poem: The Consciousness of When Read by Me
When your ears stop listening you become deaf when your eyes stop seeing you become blind
When your lips stop speaking wisdom you become imprudent when your hands stop helping you become paralyzed
When your tongue stops tasting the flavor of life you lose your appetite to savor how to live when your nose stop smelling you lose your sense of discovery
When you stop learning to love you quickly begin to hate when you stop being compassionate you will become insensitive
When you disconnect with good you open your spirit to evil when you stop learning you douse yourself ignorance
When your heart stops beating your soul will depart forever…
This is a tremendous poem… it speaks to me, to never let go of the things that have served me well. It speaks to the opposite of the positive attributes that are worth holding on to and continuing to do. Kym poem reminds me not to give in and stop giving the right things my time, energy and attention. Because a day is coming that I can not control…When my heart stops beating, My soul will depart, but have I held on to love, stayed connected with good, while continuing to learn keeping my eyes open and maintain my appetite to savor how to live!!!
