Gentleness/Gentle Self 43rd Good Word in the “good Words Project”

Updated on May 25, 2020

Project Good Words

Jo Grace Goldsmith, is a person who cares deeply for other people and she created "Project Good Word" and each week she gave us one word that each of us should learn and live by to inspire us to become better writers/authors/poets.

When I spoke with Grace, she told me about the project, and I promised her that I would write a poem for each word.

Gentleness-self: be gentle and patience with one's self. I looked up the words but I don't know where I found the definition, because now I can't find it, so this word will be changed to Gentleness/Gentle-Self.

Now this poem that has been unfeatured, most of (Jo) Grace's hubs about the "Good Words" were unfeatured and her hub score dropped actually all her hubs were unfeatured. She was so disheartened that she took down all her hubs and only kept her account so she can read the work of other Hubbers and her friends.

Gentleness/Gentle-Self 43rd Good Word in the “Good Words Project”

I thought this must be wrong

Until I did my research

And here it is and now I know

It is a seed of self-love that everyone should sow

Gentleness/Gentle-self is...

When you are weary

From self-doubt, anguish, or fear

Get in touch with your Gentle-self

And wipe away your tears

Gentleness/Gentle-Self is ….

Your inner-self

Is the inner-being

That you know is true, that’s inside of you

When you feel there is no one else

Gentleness/Gentle-Self is ….

I did not know about my Gentle-self

Until I learned this word

I thought that it was wrong

It is one I had never heard

Gentleness/Gentle-self is …

It is the voice, the heart and the soul

Inside of us that helps us learn and grow

If it is hard to feel compassion

You must spring into action

Gentleness/Gentle-self is …

Then open your heart and let your Gentle-self out

So you can wipe away all seed of doubt

Like the words of Shakespeare tell you what to do

To thine own self be true
