Recognise that whilst we walk similar paths we all stumble
Recognise that in moments of despair it is the hand that we hold
that makes us blind
To the pain.
Recognise that it is our contribution to living
That ultimately counts.
Have courage to stand tall and speak truths
and lift up the spirit and soul
of young and old
Leave silent footprints
That others may follow
In their own time and at their own pace
Recognise and respect each moment for what it is
It is your live to be lived
Make it meaningful and worthwhile.
This is for d’verse Poetics recipes
