Do animals have less fear because they live without words?
Don’t mess with me! I know Karate, Judo, Kung Fu, Tae Kwan Do, Jujitsu, and 25 other dangerous words!
“What were Tarzan’s last words?”
Who greased that vine!
“It’s all messy: The hair. The bed. The words. The heart. Life…”

Some cannot say it – despite how they feel.
And way down inside, you’ll find at the core,
that few can love higher than dog fleas soar.
There are many words and so many styles.
Some share their feelings with tears in one eye,
while others share thoughts in endless supply.
than walking the talk, and ‘doing’ instead.
When we are confronted with our simple trials,
do we drag our cross and for how many miles?
We wish every time it would just disappear;
but if our love’s real – and fills us inside,
A cross surely conquers when we are denied.
For there was a Man that lived long ago,
who gave so much more – than we’ll ever know.
He shared with the children, women and men,
and taught us all how – to love once again
but rather, instead, of unselfish walk.
While prayers were sincere to His Father above,
mere words didn’t finish His dutiful love.
and faithfully walked each step all alone.
We cannot imagine the pain He endured,
and from the soldiers, the scoffing He heard.
but actions spoke louder than two timbers crossed.
For love did not lose to the cross in that war –
-because Jesus yet lives and that cross is no more.
– Louis Gander
