This Is All It Takes

Updated on April 14, 2013

This Is All It Takes..........really !

Grey skies clouds moving fast


The universe beyond is so vast


Small insignificant me


To make a difference here let's see


In this crazy world around me


Those in need deserve our help


It's the only way to satisfy yourself


Giving and receiving there's nothing better


Too bad most don't want the same


All too often we take and take


It's time to recognise our mistake


To make it right will be great



And that's about all it will take.

    Thanks for reading this poem.

    You can tell it was one of my first attempts here and on reading it again it didn't seem like the same person had written it.

    With your help it has pushed it up a place so thanks for that guys.

    HubHugs---------I like that.

    Daisy, yes I do see you as a giver that is why we have so much respect for you here and everywhere else we meet you on the www

    As for Sunshine625, Linda you are always there for us all thanks.

    K9Keystrokes I am off to read some of your work now.

    Steve (poshcoffeeco),

    Words well spoken, my friend.

    This sound like the beginning of your inspirational writing. For me personally, I have difficulty with graciously *receiving*... I would much rather *give*.

    Your poem reminded me of these beautiful words from Mother Theresa: "We cannot do great things, only small things with great love."

    Thanks, poshcoffeeco
