This thing we share and dare to share with our human family must ever balance us,
For if we ever allow our own arrogance to get the better of us ,then our common human experience is void.
When we accept that we are truly one,when we endeavour to look after rather than tear down then goodness prevails,
If we ever feel tempted to put ourselves above others,then we are defeated,we have fallen into the mire.
Each day,we are confronted with weakness,be it within our own species,or the animal kingdom,
It’s how we react to the suffering of others be it our own kind ,or the animals,that dictates who we truly are.
When we refuse to bury our own ego,and do our best for others,then the hedonist in all of us wins,and we are less,
As I witness the abundance of good that I see ,I have hope that we can do it.
Yes,there is work to do,why our very planet needs care,does it not,and that care starts with me,
In reality,the defenceless person and animal they need care and that starts with me.
These little things done devotedly each day add up,they add up to a better world,a better place,
In that better place we can all have a share in just caring enough to listen,to trying to do some measure of good.
It’s when people feel ignored,isolated,and neglected that’s when the Planet suffers,that’s when it fractures,
So as the day nears its end,I reflect on what I’ve done to show love ,to help out,to care,to reach out!!!
