What can I share with my small world?
Perhaps kind words, understanding, empathy,
cherished friendships and love for others,
listening, being there,
and throughout the process I am
There is the understanding that I am able to
assist others and not selfishly
always think of myself,
the joy in fostering happiness with others,
perhaps it’s part of being more
self-aware, and possessing more
self-knowledge to be positive,
to be present,
Part of the process of my journey
in becoming a better human being
has come with reflection and time,
considerations of variances of life experiences,
dark and light.
There have been many
so too, despairing and sadness,
but it is with consideration,
reflection of both negativity and positivity
that has been,
that I can truly
appreciate my path and provide to others
with my altered, developing perspectives.
To make their hearts warm,
to feel appreciated also,
no longer am I swirling down,
in the darkness which had engulfed me
I am brighter, kinder, lighter,
and I dare say, my path of spiritual growth seems
more direct and much more calmer.
As I increase my self-understanding,
I can encourage joyfulness
and cheery moments
with kindhearted words
to those who are in need,
and those who too wish to engage in the sharing,
allow me to share with you the fruits of my self-healing.
