Ask

Standard

You can never truly tell

What is in a persons

Heart or mind.

So ask them

Then honor them by listening to

Their reply.

Never Give Up

Standard

Never give up on humans.

(Yourself included)

We are all doing the best we can

Wherever we may be on the

Wild journey

Called life.

All from different backgrounds,

Different families.

Some come from steadfast foundations,

Some grew up in battlefields.

Patience.

Compassion.

Some feel stuck in places they don’t belong

But we get frustrated with them.

We see things differently.

Perspective.

Relativity.

Gentle speak,

Steady love.

Believe in one another.

There is more good,

There is more beauty than

Some choose to see everyday.

Stop listening to the noise

And listen.

(If you are ready)

Stop giving up

And sit in stillness.

Go back to the beginning.

Look

And see.

Hold your gaze in one place

And see.

(we all get lost)

Sing softly to those who are lost

And help them return

To themselves.

(When you are ready)

Do not be discouraged.

Think What You Will

Standard

You can think what you will of me

For you do not know me.

And your thoughts do not affect me

Unless i allow them to.

How simple,

Yet how tangled we become in things

Intangible.

And even if you do not listen

I will listen.

And so it goes

And so it is.

And here we are

With little choices every moment

That lead to big choices

In the one moment.

And so it goes

And so it is

And here we are.
Even if we live in the same house

We do not walk in the same shoes.

Measuring

Standard

Do not take lightly the pain
Of another because they do not hurt like you,

(measuring with your eyes

that which cannot be poured into a cup)
Honor another’s soul (and your own)
And know that pain is pain;

yet again relative only to each persons heart and soul

experience.
We need to sit and listen more
Be gentle
Be love
Laugh
And validate
Look each other in the eyes
And say  (to yourself as well)
“I know you exist.
I see you,
I feel you.
You are worthy
And you are enough.”
