The Poems I Have Not Written —

By johnlmalone

I am outside late at night

Writing poems

About the poems I have not written

The ones I’ve shied away from

Because of embarrassment

Or timidity

Or fear of shedding my jovial persona

And find Somewhat alarmingly

That the poems I have not written

The Poems I Have Not Written —


Have you ever wondered about your words?

I too, have stories that lay in the dust, not written for what reason I don’t know. Perhaps I worry about criticism, or failure, when I should be sharing what I am thinking with others.

Ask a Child, Ask a Butterfly

Sometimes kindness is hard to see because we are focused on what is “going wrong today”.

Every small step counts. Every small gesture matters.
Kindness comes in all forms. Accept and embrace it when you see.
Pass it forward. It is like the flowing river, shaping and changing the lives of those who come along its way. Keep flowing and Keep growing.

Flow like a waterfall. A beautiful sight in its glory.
Life is movement.
Change is a necessary transformation.
Ask a child, ask a butterfly.
