Unable to be all things
For all people,
Perhaps at one time,
I tried.
 
Those days are
Behind me now,
Never worked out well.
 
Better to focus on
One thing at a time:
A song in the heart,
A vision in the mind.
 
For then a path unfolds,
A journey for the soul,
The simple truths,
Bring the most joy.

(2015)

Multi-tasking is overrated!

If you pleased everyone at once, you could do miracles. Not even Jesus Christ could please everyone.
