    WHEN THE PARTY ENDS
    By F. B. Rasheed

    When the music stops, the lights go off
    And the party ends
    That reflection in the mirror
    Must remain the best of our friends
    If that's not so
    Then we will have hell to pay
    For all other friends
    Have gone their individual way
    And they too are facing
    Their own reflections as they assess
    Whether their lives are shot
    Or if they are a success
    Have they (we) stayed true to ourselves
    And honored G-d's gifts He's given
    Or merely prostituted our souls
    So that an inkling of praise or a pittance of gold would be given?
    When the party ends
    Life continues on you see
    Gifts must not end with each party
    But continue to eternity

    Bluewater, Thanks for reading and commenting, yes our lives are more than parties and events.

    angelicsage, Thank you, words take on flesh so we must continue the wise and excellent speech and influence the actions.

    $$RICH$$,
    Thanks, it's a growing orchestra.

    PositiveMindset, and i too am open for positive growth and development.

    watzinaname, yes let's continually RE (again) SPECT (look) the Brother and Sister is a mirror for one another. We have to work at being clean and true mirrors and not smudged and carnival ones.

    Peace and Blessings----ALL
