Kindness

Holding Daisies

Does your heart try
to please every soul
turn frowns upside down
dry tears and console

Do your eyes see the good
in everything around
in every person you pass
on the streets in your town

If the answer is yes
then you’re quite the friend
you have an abundance of love
to share again and again

Yet, you’re also at risk
to having your heart broken
because not all will agree
with your words spoken

So you do your best
for the common good
and hope all your loving actions
are truly understood

FINDING INNER STRENGTH (re-post)

persevere

It’s finally time to SHOUT
“Enough is Enough”
To dust off shields of armor
and flip the switch to “tough”

With every step in each new day
it’s too easy to fret and worry
Wasting a God given moment
instead of cheering in His glory

Toss those words and thoughts
that surely weigh us down
A lighter load will bring us smiles
and erase those dreadful frowns

So, arm in arm, let’s move forward
for strength in perseverance
Do not relent to downward slips
Ignore the interference!

I hope this brings you strength
in whatever you’re going through in life.

A Choice

It’s in front of you, if you look real close,
and as clear as the vase that holds the rose
You don’t want to miss this profound craze
grab your readers, don’t be in a daze
It’s like a flower, so friendly and cheerful
Go ahead, seek it out and don’t be fearful
Remember the doe and her baby you saw?
After taking this step, you’ll be in awe
When you fall in love for the very first time
nothing can compare to your feeling of sublime
That’s how you’ll feel when you take this chance
You’ll want to get up and dance
Even still, you question my words
Believe me when I say you’ll be singing with the birds
Your life will be changed and you’ll feel truly blessed
When you look real close, you’ll find Happiness

(Yes, it’s really hard sometimes,
but it’s worth trying to focus, isn’t it?)

Smile :) (re-post)

Just when you think
all is worked out
A wrench is thrown in
creating new doubt

Your mind is befuddled
Your breathing sporadic
Bitterness comes a knockin’
Life becomes problematic

But don’t think you’re incapable
of crawling through the haze
Don’t think you’ve exhausted
all the feasible ways

Even though life’s been
a true humdinger
In your dark and sour mood
You must not linger

Get up, dust off
Stop your yammerin’
or you’ll start your family
and friends all a clamorin’

Does absolutely no good
to frequently niggle, so
when you’re feelin’ down,
form a grin and try a giggle!

(This is an oldie
from February of last year,
but I thought we all could use
a smile today! )

New Beginnings

Turn the pages from the past
Put your worries in last place
In those fretting times
where hope has vanished

search for a caring embrace

Use a shoulder if it’s offered
when tears begin to fall
They’re not a sign of weakness
but a cleansing of the soul

Take advantage of the sunshine
warming your spirit with it’s rays
  and even when the clouds are rolling
there’s always reason for praise

Faith, Love and Strength
follow Hope in each new day
and with each precious baby step
You will find your way
