thoughts du jour

It seems to me

that we each walk our bit of earth

filled to the brim

with a blend

of sorrow and beauty,

hope

and

tragedy.

And maybe,

if we can just stand with eyes wide open

for a small minute,

we'll understand

that everyone has their own cup

of heartache;

that we needn't

shouldn't

mustn't

wrestle joy from someone's day.



My immediate goal: be kind today.
