Inside Out

Dream fantastical, superb, sublime
Climb a mountain for all mankind—
Build a rocket, travel light
No time now for wimpy fright!

Cross the desert on camel back
Swim the channel, set the tack
Find a cure for the next great plague–
Defy the laws of science

Wait…hold on just one minute there
no one expects so much; I dare–
The truth, each soul’s worth requires less
Then the constant drive to impress

A gentle word, a warm embrace
The smallest moment of loving grace
Will certainly suffice for now
As we go marching –listen how

The smallest gesture ripples out–

Impact the world from the inside out.

    Thanks, P! I can’t seem to escape the simple rhyme scheme, so I’ve decided not to try. It’s easy and by the end of the day, which is when I write, I’m not interested in thinking too hard! Have a great year.

      You’re welcome! Mrs. H had told me that you wrote, so I was curious to see what you had online haha. Have a great year, too!
