I Can(t)

Just because I may have had a bad day
Doesn’t mean that I can’t make someone else’s day.

Just because I may be having a problem
Or problems even
Doesn’t mean that I can’t help someone else with theirs.

Just because I may be struggling
Physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, or…..
Maybe even all of them at the same time
Doesn’t mean that I can’t forget someone else’s struggles.

Just because I may be thriving
Physically, mentally, financially, or
Maybe even all of them at the same time
With everything in complete flow
Doesn’t mean that I can forget someone else’s struggles.

It is, whatever, it is

Whatever your religious faith
whatever your political view

whatever the color of your face
whatever the country of your origin
whatever your sexual orientation
what your economic situation
whatever your personal feelings
whatever the world may say,
It’s ok.

 
Whatever they may be, I can have my way, and you can have your way. It is our differences that make us unique, that propel us forward, that foster new ideas. There are many paths that lead to the same destination, which we all are striving for –
 

Happiness / Love / Joy / Success / Peace / Fulfillment / Satisfaction

Whatever they may be, as long as we can mutually find kindness and compassion in our hearts, as long as we can be nice to one another, as long as we respect our differences and each other’s opinions, then we are good.

LOVE

I am In Love
With myself
And the world
Around me

Beyond the veil
Of good and bad
Of mistakes and failures
Of loss and gain
Of rich and poor
Of beautiful and ugly
Of masculine and feminine
Of strong and weak

To the most beautiful
Unconditional authentic self
And the world around me
In Love I am

I am in Love
With the Moment
And all the opportunities
Enveloping me

Beyond the veil
Of what was or could be
Of hurt or anger
Of lack or insecurity
Of guilt or resentment
Of doubt or uncertainty
Of tomorrow or yesterday
Of limitations or expectations

To the most beautiful
Unconditional authentic self
And the world around me
In Love I am

WE FAILED.

As a culture, we fail
when we let fear; hate and/or violence
become social norm.
As a society, we fail
when we shun “them” instead
of embracing them.
As a community, we fail
when even one member dies
feeling unloved.
