  2. JPPT1974's Weekend Thoughts 6/2-6/4/2017

    Success is not
    Found over on
    That of the cars

    Or in the houses
    But in the

    All we need

    You and me
    To give the

    To Him and

    It as He has
    Made us and
    Knows all about us
    From the womb
    Of our mothers.
    Temporary success will only
    Last a second.
