Change Starts from yoUrselF




The sunshine colored umbrella
is her Kleenex,
dries off her tears or runny nose,
keeps her mood in comfortable
soft when days go stormy.
.

In common senses’ fabrication,
A handy dainty tool
She is gifted from a unique box,
The feel of being under magical spell
soaks constant doubts of ambiguity.
.

It’s heart breaking when virtue is out of steps,
with pseudo keeping in check,
this umbrella offers hope to wipe off consequences
caused by continued errors
that tarnish life in dumbness.
.

One has to think twice before act,
Change starts from YourSelf,
Be the magical umbrella,
Let your own action speak,
Let life give you wings to fly.
.

  10. powerful stuff with the simplest delivery.

    change does start from oneself, if one refuses to change, it is impossible to expect others to do it.

    empty slogan must stop upon one reads this.

    keep it up.

  17. Cool idea, Taylor. I love these lines:

    this umbrella offers hope to wipe off consequences
    caused by continued errors
    that tarnish life in dumbness.

    Our errors do tarnish our lives in dumbness if we don't wipe them away quickly; thanks for the reminder to keep our souls polished with forgiveness. :)
