In life, it is a give and take.
However, for some it is just take and take.
For others, it is only fulfilling to know
that something is different
because the Lord woke you this day,
as He does every day,
before He brings you home.
Write something beautiful,
make it worth reading.
Play with the letters and the form.
Change the colors and the pictures,
move them all around.
This is important to someone... today!
Now go up to the top,
and pick thee more at random,
poems, shorts and quips.
Read other people's words,
to sharpen and feed your own.
Know that they struggle
and they dance,
know that they have a life,
and a chance...
like all the rest.
Give them words of encouragement...
Write them letters of worth.
Tend to the garden of which we all plant...
remove the weeds, unless we can't.
Cut the roses in a giant bouquet,
let the colors be just those...
those of the day.
Teach each other about acceptance, and tolerance.
Stop apathy over-exuberance
and peel away brashness,
in favor of her little sister...
Share the fame,
know the game...
of loving and belonging...
as we each need each other,
more than we know.
