Half Of What I Say

 
‘Half of what I say is meaningless’    
will become a chant, my mantra    
to everything beyond what I can    
express when in total happiness    
or abject misery, and anything    
between. For I am meant to be a    
     
lowly soul, even in the highest of    
his ethereal temple.  That I may    
then pass through at every level    
from my belly, without arms and    
legs like the worm I have become    
   
in this life.  I will serve the Lord’s    
purpose in his own interests, for    
the best of plans; not just for me,    
but including me in his love, in a    
divine future. For a worm is also    
     
servant that works gladly for the    
cultivation for the good of God’s    
message.  Showing me as I rest,    
a message half-meaningless may    
bring him the other half whole.    
     
     
     
     
#KahlilGibran    
     
"Half of what I say is meaningless”  
is from Kahlil Gibran's  
"Sand and Foam" (1926)
in which the full verse reads,
"Half of what I say is meaningless,
but l say it so that the other half
may reach you".
