Look Around You
We can start by appreciating the good in the next person we meet
Yes, one simple step
Take all their faults and throw them away
At least for the time being
Look beyond what we think we know?
See what other people have missed
Listen and when your done listening
Listen for more words
Let them speak
Tune in instead of tuning out
I know your mind is racing ahead
We are all use to the old way
Saying what's on our mind
It is so much harder than it looks
Pretend we have no voice
We can not talk
Think of what we will say?
What will our first words be?
A simple smile says it all
We learn a lot more than we give ourselves credit for
Our brain is made up of 100 billion cells
So help me
Put them to work
Thinking of how great it is
To be right here at this moment
A friend and I joke
The lights on but nobody's home
Little did I realize
How much we are capable of thinking every day
Why don't we think for ourselves?
We often criticize quickly and judge
In only a blink of an eye
How could we really have formed a complete thought?
We may have ideas and half baked concoctions
If we are not careful
They can get ahead of us
Try for one day
Not to say any opinions at all
We all have an important voice
Isn't it time ?
To use it for good instead of bad
