POEM

“Patience visited me

And it reminded me

That good things take time to come to fruition

And grow slowly with stability


Peace visited me

And it reminded me

That I may remain calm through the storms of life

Regardless of the chaos surrounding me


Hope visited me

And it reminded me

That better times lay ahead

And it would always be there to guide and uplift me


Humility visited me

And it reminded me

That I may achieve it

Not by trying to shrink myself and make myself less

But by focusing on serving the world and uplifting those around me


Kindness visited me

And it reminded me

To be more gentle, forgiving and compassionate toward myself

And those surrounding me


Confidence visited me

And it reminded me

To not conceal or suppress my gifts and talents

In order to make others feel more comfortable

But to embrace what makes me me


Focus visited me

And it reminded me

That other people’s insecurities and judgements about me

Are not my problem

And I should redirect my attention

From others back to me


Freedom visited me

And it reminded me

That no one has control over my mindset, thoughts and wellbeing

But me


And love visited me

And it reminded me

That I need not search for it in others

As it lies within me.”
