The Little Things

Joe was feeling really low one day,

but it’s the little things,

that helped him find his joy again

and release his pain,

His precious son gave him a hug,

& knowing he was Loved,

went the longest way

toward bringing the smile

back to his face

In the smallest gesture he found the sweetest grace

The Strength of a King

As his airplane takes off, Monty looks out the window, down at the hometown he’s leaving behind, excited for all the new adventures he’ll find

He’s also letting go
of a lot of painful memories
Years of nightmarish abuse
and vicious bullying
He’s off to follow his dreams,
Focused on his future,
nurturing better things

What couldn’t break him
gave him the courage he’d need,
Those who tried to make him a victim
Gave him the strength of a king

Seattle On A Saturday

Jordan hit Seattle on a Saturday,

even though he lived a few hours away

he needed the break

from the week he’d had anyway

he met up with friends,

& they let him stay and rest up

w/them for a while…

The good times he had with them

brought fresh light to his smile

He said:

“Let’s do this again soon, okay?

when I’m headed back again this way,

& don’t worry about the coffee, I’ll pay,

you all really made my day”
