Inclusion


Talk to someone you don’t know today
share a smile with a stranger
include someone in your life
make your circle larger

Give hope to someone who is down
a shoulder to those less strong
listen to a broken heart speak
open your heart wider

Praise someone who has overcome
or one who has done well
a pat on the back can change a life
open your arms farther

Practice inclusion with every step
dismiss none think of all
walk for a second in another’s shoes
open your life each moment more

Welcome


The welcome mat laid out to start
friendships new and renewed
in cyberspace we meet and share
what’s up with me and you

From all over these friends now come
together relationships we build
through posts and messages
our lives to be filled

Though we may have never met
or once knew each other long ago
friendship is just a click away
learning things we want to know

Over time and space we connect
strands in the universe are we
new and renewed in cyberspace
welcome friends I now see

Friend


There are those called friend
and the word doesn’t fit
for they are only shells
of what a friend should be.

There are those called friend
who turn out to be users,
liars and backstabbing gossips
nothing a friend should be.

There are those called friend
who are only when they wish it
and not when you truly need them
never what a friend should be.

There are those called friend
who are there through it all
walking heart to heart
always what a friend should be.

You Are My What


As I was going back through my MySpace blog copying over the poems I had written there, I came across the first poem I ever posted online in August 2006. Β All those writings brought back so many memories. Β So, I thought I would share my first one again :)

You are my shoulder…to lean on
You are my ears…that listen
You are my heart…that does not judge
You are my friend…

You are my laughter…that makes me happy
You are my calm…that gives me peace
You are my shelter…that makes me feel safe
You are my friend…

You are my hope…when I have none
You are my smile…when I cannot find mine
You are my dreams…when I need them
You are my friend…

You are my friend…yet so much more
You are my laughter, my peace, my hope
You are my friend…yet so much more

You are my lifeline…you are my friend
