We need to be gentle,
Remember we are, as are
Others – only human –
Worthy of love and respect.
Our hearts are fragile –
From being often broken;
Our capacity for love
Though limitless – sometimes –
Encounters walls unscalable.
We shall not close our lives
To opportunity, possibility;
We continue sharing compassion,
Devotion, emotion, and kindness.
We embrace those varied abilities,
Gifts, passions, skills, talents,
Which might encourage, inspire,
Someone else to begin releasing
Their greatness to help all those
Who hope, somehow, to change
Our world into a more loving place.

Thank you for visiting Haphazard Creative. I am in the midst of a Creativity Project where I attempt to make at least one post daily. I accomplished that goal for all of 2020, despite the pandemic. Most days, I post a prompt that might inspire you to create something of your own. If you wish to follow the site, there are available means in the sidebar. Also, please: like posts, comment, share and make suggestions. I intend what I am doing to be inclusive.
