Kindly, Because We All Matter

 PAD Challenge day 2: write a secret poem...

Sometimes we forget
Like a secret well-kept
In a jar we dare not shatter
That, whether rich or poor
All we’re looking for
Is to be treated like we matter

So then, in the rush
Of tug and push
And coming-going clatter
We should endeavor
To treat each other
Kindly, because we all matter

  1. Yes, indeed... bottom line. Lovely reminder. Your poem made me feel as if I was peering into the jar to look.

    Could I ask permission to post that on my blog one day? That is such a great reminder of what matters.

    Wishing you a beautiful day...

  2. Brenda, thank-you. and if you choose to post it on your blog I would be humbly honoured!

    Happy April to you and a blessed Easter!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
