Kindness To A Child

I am a child.
Like anyone else
I want to be heard,
Not just seen.

I have much to say
Much more to give
But I am told to go away,
Let people be.

You have an opportunity
To make an impression in my life,
For the actions you take
Will impact, who I am to be.

I watch you and I see
How busy you are,
Everyone wants your time
But today, you save it for me.

When you give me your time
My world stands still,
The way you stop and listen
To the words, I have to say.

I share with you my thoughts
As I look into your eyes,
My heart knows you are listening,
You do not look away.

Your choice is simple
And cost you nothing to give,
To show me how important I am
And not walk away.

Today you showed me love
And that I matter to you,
I am important in this life
Now and always.

For there is no greater gift
That one person can give,
Than to show kindness and love
To a child, every day.

My soul’s desire has always been to create something from nothing. To being with a blank screen and let the story unfold. Starting a blog was not initially on my radar but when the inspiration came from a former teacher of mine, I ran with it. As I thought about what I wanted to create, I decided it was a place where I could share my musings. I want to connect with others who share my affinity for everyday humor, while navigating through life’s joys and challenges. I am not a professional writer, yet. At this point in my blog career, I hope to share my inspirations and craziness that is my life as a writer, mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend. My hope is that in sharing my unique perspective on my own experiences, I will in turn touch someone’s life; whether through laughter or tears. We are all the same, seeking connections and a place to fit in. I welcome all to be inspired and to be inspiring.
