Dear Me ,
Be of small words, but bigger goals.
Be humble of spirit, so at the top you shall stand mighty and bold.
Be Kind, so you spread your warmth wherever you go,
Be generous whilst giving, even if only a smile, let it reach out to those love hungry souls.
Be grateful, now and always, so at all times you remember you have more than enough.
Be resilient, it is the power to conquer your fears.
Because when you hear hurtful words,
you know the pain they cause ,
and when you see a broken spirit,
you can also see yours and so you know the time it takes to not feel distraught.
When you are treated unkindly,
you know the world out there is dangerously cold, lacking empathy.
Because you know the disappointment of not receiving smiles in a day,
One less, creates a disturbing void.
Because you know that when the heart loves freely it holds nothing back,
so not receiving enough love makes you wonder , “what it is that you lack? ”
Because if you never pause, be glad and feel thankful,
you will still be the human clinging to unhealthy remorse.
If you let your desires and greed overpower you,
who will for you intercede?
Life is not the world or what the world gives,
but rather it is you and what your soul reaps.
