There Is Room For Your Gifts…

Everyone has a gift,

for which there’s plenty of room.

Be it a talent for writing,

or creating scents and perfumes.

We all have the ability

to shine bright as can be,

but we must acknowledge the worth,

that everyone else can see.

You may think your words,

fall limp on deaf ears.

Unknowingly giving weight,

to the root of your fears.

Until you accept,

that your gifts have a space,

talents remain hidden, in an undisclosed place.

There is room for your gifts,

so please have a seat.

Your talents are needed,

for a world complete!

The Gift of Kindness…

A frown replaced by a beautiful smile,

a changing mood, a day worthwhile.

A heart that gives freely always gets back,

blessings ten-fold, though odds may be stacked.

A lifetime of consequences and lessons learned.

kindness given, yields kindness returned,

It feels so good to make another person’s day,

while showing them that there’s another way.

The gift of kindness, gives great reward,

drawing nearer the dreams that propel us forward.
