Louis Gibbs


Before undertaking a

Monumental shift in character

May I recommend this plea:


With the help of

Gracious guides and angels,

I release that negative aspect of self

Which no longer serves me.


May mercy be

Bestowed on me

In this transformation!


So may it be.

    I see this as a plea to the inner self - great write Louis.

    • Louis Gibbs

      It may certainly be seen that way. Thanks for your comment, Michael.

    • Mugsdaddy

      Kind of a montra for a fresh start. I like it.

      • Louis Gibbs

        It is that. I appreciate your comment, Mugs.

      • FredPeyer

        I think it is nearly impossible to change one's character without help. Your plea is perfect!

        • Louis Gibbs

          Especially when it has been one way for so long a time. Thanks so much, Fred!

            Perfect ending, Goldie.

            A fine write L. I believe it's the 'inner self' that needs changing, not (or not only) the 'outward state' of 'society' as some abstract thing.

            • Louis Gibbs

              I'll have a sherry to that, 'O'!

            • wordseven7

              Inner change will reflect outward.
              This we all need.....

              • Louis Gibbs

                True words, w-s. Thank you for your input!

                Great write Louis. We are doing about the same thing. Looking for changes leaving behind what we don't need.

                • Louis Gibbs

                  Congratulations to you, Malu, and Godspeed!

                  Great write. I hope your transformation is smooth and event free.

                  • Louis Gibbs

                    Thank you for this kind thought, l-g, though I'm afraid it is anything but that.

                    Who let that pussycat in here? Everything must change, tis one of the laws of nature be it only death or decay a change will come. But you can doso much better than that with willpower and the good help of friends around you.

                    • Louis Gibbs

                      And where would we be without our friends here on MPS? Thanks for your comment, d-a.
