Ode to the common people


Ode to the common people


I have such respect for the "ordinary people".

I like their simplicity.


I like their well cut grass

and Sunday barbecues


Especially the American bunch.


Despite all my judgements and POV,

I like them.


There is a sense of ease, and grace and life is good.

Even and especially when it isn't.


And yes people can say it's fake and whatnot…

But it can be real.


I have such respect for the common people.


For their marriages and their kids and white fences.

And soccer games, that I do not really like.

And even baseball, that I don't really understand.


I have such respect for the common


people.


Maybe, because on some level, on some days, I wish I could be just like them.


And have a simple life;


a life which I was ultimately not made for and have not chosen.


Still, I have such respect and love


for the common people.



And I bless them and I ask them, that they bless me.


There is beauty in the simplicity of the random chatter of Sunday barbecue behind a white fence....



if you have eyes to see and ears to hear.



I pray that you do, and I hope you are blessed by the greatness of the high blessing of


the common


people..


who are ultimately, anything else but


common.
