Roles People Play

“Roles People Play” – written and read through Walter

A preacher will preach
and in public proclaim
their cherished beliefs
in word and in name

A teacher will teach
with lessons laid out,
plans to follow
a predictable route

A mentor takes strides,
footprints appear
the framework provided
a blueprint made clear

The guru shines bright
and illumines the dark,
removing all obstacles,
pointing home to the heart

A friend knows just when
to listen or speak
not aiming for change
just allowing to be

All are but roles
played by The One,
silence holds all,
space rejects none.
