Remember that near run-in in traffic the other day —
when that car cut you off on the express highway?

Remember at lunch the other day as we stood in that long line —
and those two guys cut in front of us like all was well and fine?

It wasn’t all good and it wasn’t okay…
Your lack of response was heavily at play 

and I didn’t understand why; not really.
Though arguing with folk that you don’t know lacks commons sense; it’s silly. 

I’m so digging your vibe. I’m composing this so that you literally feel me.
for, if compassion were a knife, offenders are screaming “kill me!” 

I love the way that you give way to new life.
You put compassion above karma and birth new light. 

When I asked you about the rude driver incident that played out in traffic –
your compassion lead to comedy; you made it something to laugh at. 

When I asked you about lunch – curious about your thoughts,
you made a meal out compassion that’s rarely being sold or bought.

So, I woke up this morning wanting to put it on display:
COMPASSION in ACTION and how my friend, Mickey plays.

Way to go, Mick, for reviving that thing,
that America intends to stand for and collectively mean:

You aren’t just talking about it, you put it into ACTION. 

Mickey responded, regarding the two incidents: 

  1. “Who knows if the driver that cut us off in traffic was late or in the middle of an emergency? Who knows how I’d respond under that type of pressure in this type of traffic…”
  2. “I’m not sure why they cut in front of us in line? Perhaps they work under-the-gun and aren’t privvy to long lunch breaks? I can’t imagine how that feels.” 

Both responses were born out of strength.
Mickey‘s time is valuable and positively spent

He chooses to run the day and to not have the day run him.
He approaches the karmic moves of others with extension or hem.

If the situation is thoughtless,  young Mick gives no time to it.
When it comes to enjoying life in the face  of spite — Mick’s ‘gonna do it. 

Let us be like Mickey, but he is by far, not a mouse.
Mick is a towering specimen who rejects the energy of louse.

Putting Compassion into Action starts with a zest for life – to win it!
Think of that vibe that you love and thrive — then give no time to being offended.

Good morning beloved, remain sweet on life even when it feels kind of sticky,
I’m Qui
Feeling childish like Disneyindepths while quoting my Dronologist, Mickey.
