Making a Legacy - Poem.

Let this new poem I just wrote be some food for thought. If you are having a bad day, feel bad about something, feel like you don't measure up, if you 'compare' yourself and your life to others and don't measure up (and you shouldn't compare), if the weather is lousy and grey where you live, if you are feeling sick, if your kids are being little devils, if you are having the worst day ever (or if it feels like it is), let this poem be a positive hymn for you all. We all have so much life to live and legacies to make and continue making. Right?! Read on!!

[7.25 A.M., June 26th 2019.]

It has been a difficult year,
but the sunshine is on its way,
open up your blinds just a little bit,
let the sun and the sky come to you as they may...

Wake up and open those beautiful eyes,
make yourself a pot of fresh hot coffee,
don't be discouraged, be brave,
there is so much amazingness ahead of you, 
                                                 just believe!

Take a deep breath,
there is so much good oxygen in this world,
don't fall a victim of your own head,
get out of any funk you may have had!

Believe and be aware that you are doing great,
there are many paths to walk into,
many lessons still to be learned,
sunrises and sunsets into the deep dark blue!

Make it up as you go if you have to,
one day at a time, one step at a time,
feel the rhythm of the beats of your heart,
it is still beating, it is full of blood!

If things go wrong and they will, stand up still,
if you feel beaten up, take a shower and relax,
take good care of yourself, only you can,
take good care of your heart and your dreams!

Because everyone has something to say to you,
everyone wants to judge you, make you feel bad,
but you do you, continue to encourage yourself,
let the bad things be bygones, worry about yourself!

You don't have to fit anywhere,
you are you and I am me,
this monster of a world may give you a scare,
but here you are, making a legacy!
