Without Squawking

Do you suppose

Even the most powerful bird

Can advance

Against the current

By getting angry?

No matter how much it squawks,

The wind will continue to blow.

When I encounter headwinds,

I have the same choices.

Get angry


Make a fuss.


Take a deep breath

Spread my wings

And fly.


Conditions change

Almost immediately.

What a joy!

At others

I may be in it

For the long haul.

No matter what,

The answer is still the same.



Energy rightfully expended.


If I face the headwinds,

May I meet the challenge

Without squawking.

Do everything without grumbling or arguing (Philippians 2:14 NIV).
