Rainy Day

Day 30-Questad

Rainy Day
Playing drums on the roof
Sounding like a thousand people marching
And drums drumming down the driveway
Rat-a-tat. Rat-a-tat
The rain beats a staccato
Beating like a heart
Slowly changing rhythms as the storms moves away

Day 29-Wish Poem

I wish I could help hurting despondent people understand
I wish they knew how much each soul is worth
I wish I could take away their pain
I wish they knew Christ did
I wish that they could see that their loved ones will hurt
I wish they could understand that there’s always a way out
I wish they knew that they are loved
I wish, I wish, I wish, they would choose to live.

To all the Heroes

Day 28-Hero Poem
We can all be a hero to ourselves
We can be a hero when we help another in any way
We can be a hero as we struggle through our trials, and we all have them
We can be a hero every day. Just a smile at people you meet
We can be a hero by helping others, which in turn helps us
We can be our own hero as we serve others and bless own own lives
So serve yourself be serving others
Be the hero in your own life

Poem in my Pocket

Day 26-Poem in My Pocket

I was at work at the Library yesterday and saw this book that intrigued me. WhileI was going through the book, a quote really rang true for me. That’s what I’m using today. The book is Staying Strong: 365 day’s a year” by Demi Lovato. 

June 6
Don’t cry because it’s over;
Smile because it happened. 
—-Dr. Seuss 

There will be times when something good comes to and end. Instead of thinking about the fact that it’s over—stay positive that it happened in the first place. I was so sad to return home after spending time in Africa with my friends and family. We were all crying when it was time to go—no one wanted to leave such an amazing place. I can look back now, though, without crying. I’m so thankful for my time spent there with people I love, and I can’t wait to go back. 

Goal: Think about a happy moment in your life and be grateful for the joy it gave you. Reflect on happy moments, even if they’ve passed.

Earth Day

Day 25-Free Verse

This Earth of ours is so wonderful
There’s so much to be thankful for
But we need to take a lot better care
Of this planet we call home
So let’s all do our part
To reuse, recycle, and reduce
Then our children and grandchildren
Can enjoy the beauties of Earth
