Every once in a while I love to create a rhyme. When I was little I used to carry around a notebook that I would write poems in (I sure wish I still had that notebook). So, I thought while we are doing this April challenge, I would flex my poetry/rhyming muscles a little as well.
A compliment that is thrown my way
can brighten my most dreary day.
“You look nice” or “I like your hair”
makes some tough times a little easier to bear.
Please, Thank You and My Pleasure are simple ways to be polite
and are are likely to bring sunshine to someone’s day or night.
So take a minute to think before you speak.
Build others up, don’t try to make them feel weak.
Lifting someone up is such and easy thing to do.
But sometimes our kind words are too few.
We are quick to argue and quick to defend
which makes us less likely to allow our attitudes to bend.
Make a point and set a goal
to uplift someone else’s soul.
A kind word or two will uplift someone’s mood
and can make that person feel renewed.
