We are not as concrete in this world
as we’d hope to think.
It makes me wonder about
Maybe I can be born again,
free of sin.
As I step into
to my next word
I hope to forget the past,
live in the future
and create a new reality.
frees the seeds
from its stem
coupled with a wish
along the riverside.
Picked up by
a wide-eyed child
with dirt-filled fingernails
as she goes to the water
to wash her hands.
She notices flower seeds
without a stem
where its beauty has gone
Give me your hand, empty your soul,
pour it out in mine, tilt over and
wash it all away
like a wave on the shore
retreat and do it again.
no worries here, it’s so very safe
it’s the others I’d fear.
Their hunger to know,
appetite for desire,
but believe it or not
we’re all darkness inside
not only sunrises, but sunsets as well
so lend me your hand, promise, I’ll hold it tight as
we’ll dance together and pirouette through twilight
If you were to walk down the street many new faces would pass on by. Most of the faces you may never see again, but inside each and every one of them is the ability of choice.
Some people spend their time on earth for good while others use it for evil, but inside everyone is the ability to be a hero.
A hero is usually the person who makes it to the front page of the newspaper and magazine, but many of those mainstream heroes do good deeds just noticed and gain popularity and attention.
Don’t get me wrong, many of them deserve the spotlight for their heroic deeds, but is the spotlight necessary?
I believe that the true heroic deeds are the ones that go unnoticed.
A simple helping hand with a small task or a smile to a stranger can make a world of difference. Just offering to help another or being polite can really shed some good in this world.
So next time your down or upset just think about the world around you. A world constantly trying to stay a float everyday without another killing or crime.
Just try to go out and do your own small part because you can be a hero even if it’s for a minute and who cares if the world isn’t watching.
Next time if the opportunity presents itself:
- Go outside of your comfort zone
And help someone else because it may save make a difference in their life along with your own
