POEM 39 PURPOSEFUL STROLL

A purposeful stroll around the lake

Alone time, a time to meditate

The cares of life are washed away

With a clear mind, ready for play

With freedom, the choices are many

No excuse to live life blandly

All this comes when it’s time to take

A purposeful stroll around the lake

POEM 40 EMPATHY

A friend approaches with terrible news

Much worse than feeling the blues

I offer my shoulder while my friend cries

I listen quietly, try my best to empathize

I can’t feel the pain in their heart

I offer to help, try to do my part

Together we get through the day

It becomes less, but the pain never goes away
