Sometimes lucky with a pointed word
One that sticks in just the right place

Sometimes a cool, smooth phrase
Stumbled upon purely by chance

Otherwise shunned, avoided, forsaken, denied
A penchant for grace that’s never fully realized

Wanting to soothe all the troubled souls
Wanting to save the world from itself


  1. i have a big "want to save the world" bone...ugh, sometimes to a fault...and know too that i cant...

  2. Yep... lots of us have a Jesus complex!

  3. I would so love to save the world, wrap it up in a big nursery rhyme and nuture her as we all need to be. Dare to dream! That's the power of the poet :) (And thanks for the great comment at my place too...gave me a big smile!)

  4. I'd rather not bear that responsibility but I am kind of a slacker at times :)

  5. As always, nicely done. I feel for the captain, sailing stormy seas. I have my hubby with whom to stand at the helm and that helps, but trying to keep the ship upright in the tempest can be exhausting.


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
