BE THE CURE

BE THE CURE.jpg

 

In a world filled with so much sorrow

Be the pen that writes a happy tale

Be the eyes that sees the good in people

Be the nose that appreciates the pleasant smell of blooming flowers

Be the mouth that speaks kind words

Be the lips that spreads the Good News

Be the hands that give to the needy

Be the stomach that hungers but gets satisfied

Be the heart that holds no grudge

Be the legs that lead right

Be the feet that taps to good music

Be the builder and not the destroyer

Be the encourager and not the bully

Be the best version of you

Sow the best seeds you have

Reap a good harvest and be grateful

Give thanks whenever you can

 

Too many people are dying from depression

Be the cure

And not the cause

SHE BICKERED

SHE BICKERED.jpg

She bickered

He laughed

It was harmless

She was cute

It didn’t make him love her less

No one was hurt

No frown in sight

“It had no roots…

…Of course not!”

Or so he thought

So she bickered and bickered

 
 

She bickered

He giggled

It still seemed harmless

Her fingers she wiggled

It still didn’t make him love her less

It wasn’t so disturbing

Though it was getting a bit boring

She smiled a lot less

Nothing seemed out of place

For there was no frown on her face

But she bickered and bickered

 
 

Oh, she bickered!

He couldn’t make her stop

His buttons she would pop

A gesture so automatic

He was beginning to love her less

Someone, please make her stop!

He could smell the resentment

And her smile was still absent

Or maybe she was just being dramatic

So he let her bicker and bicker

 
 

She bickered!!!

This was wicked!

He missed the peace

He needed a release

She was like a dragon with no control

Always in rage like a provoked troll

Or was he the problem?

Maybe she needed him out

So he packed up few of his clothes and moved out

Giving her more space to bicker and bicker

Don’t Let

Don’t Let

 

Even when it all seems established and fruitful

Don’t let pride creep in

Even if you are swimming in a pool of emeralds and pearls

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you are sliding through life with all your trophies

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you’ve defeated giants and claimed territories

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Even when your table is filled with food

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when your cellar is well-stocked with the finest of wines

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you visit kings and queens

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you sit down to dine with the wise

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Even when they try to flatter you with sweet words of admiration

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when you hear the crowd chant your name

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when they salute and serve you

Don’t let pride creep in

Even when all your prayers seem to be answered

Don’t let pride creep in

 

Remain humble and thankful!

 

 

 

Even when the morning goes and the evening comes

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when all doors seem to be closed

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they laugh at your perseverance and faith

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they turn you down and walk away

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Even when the rain begins to pour

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when the ones closest to you betray you

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when the tears threaten to pour

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when your wallet looks old and empty

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Even when your stomach growls and your tongue is dry

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when they make silly faces and laugh at your dreams

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when you’ve been rejected and scorned

Don’t let doubt creep in

Even when tomorrow seems too far

Don’t let doubt creep in

 

Always believe, never lose faith!
