+ Connections

Hi there reader, Miro here
I wrote this rhyme for you
Because I wanted to show thanks
And take a moment to

Tell you how much that it means
When you have read my piece
I love it when you do respond
Or make the “Likes” increase

I write these rhymes because I see
All that you have inside
The potential to try harder
They’re not meant as a guide

They’re intended to remind you
Of greatness that’s been there
All along within you but
You’ve ceased to be aware

I never did it for reward
Or praise or accolades
I have so little use for those
Shallow little charades

But something great has come about
Since starting this endeavour
Positive connections with
People that I have never

Had the fortune to encounter
In the past before
So many upbeat folks who
Don’t think that life’s a bore

Supportive and encouraging
People who share their light
And love with other people so
That the world is more bright

So thank you for the connection
Of positivity
You’ve helped this warrior poet
Be all that he can be

Little Revelations

24 Nov

Little Revelations

It’s in the little things we do
And say that we reveal
Who we really are and how
We think and act and feel

Many are quite good at putting
On a phony face
They smile and laugh and try to charm
But they don’t have real grace

Because when opportunity
To show their true self comes
They are revealed by stressing out
Or madly flapping gums

They may put up the image that
They work hard for their dough
But taking elevators for
Two flights of stairs does show

That they will take all shortcuts that
Will cause them to sweat less
It’s in the little things like this
That these people confess

It’s when a person tells a tale
And it’s responded to
With little zeal and then the speaker
Recites their own view

Always changing the subject
To themselves and their tales
A revelation of ego
In the smallest details

It’s also so important to
Notice the little facts
That show people to be selfless
Those little, caring acts

A smile and a hello when
You walk by in the hall
A compliment, encouragement
A sudden, random call

Every single thing we do
Reveals to everyone
How much effort that we really
Put in this life’s run

Think about it next time that
You think it doesn’t matter
Of the two I’ve talked about
Are you the first or latter?
