Consideration for others is one thing
Apr 10, 2012

I do a lot of thinking
A lot of feeling
A lot of living for others
But what…
Have I done for myself?
Consideration for others is one thing
Consideration for oneself is another

Lost Sight in life
Though I'm not Blind

Yet I'm not paid in Kind

Now I'm Lost
As I searched to Find

I gave it Heart
Only to lose my Mind.

Kindred spirits are rare and few
Making you smile when feeling blue

When shrouded in gloom and needing a lift
Wrapping empathy in a surprise gift

Picking you when feeling down
Providing comfort when wearing a frown

Not to judge or ill advise
Sympathetic, friendly and wise

A shared pain has a healing feeling
A soothing word can stop you reeling

A respectful, caring, considerate friend
Will always be there to the very end

Gliding through life,
Like Seagulls in the mist.
Riding that high
As social misfits.

With a considerate twitch
For which we have nothing
Silence remains
As do our pens.

We write of our fights,
Though few believe.
Until all is gone
And we forever leave.

Crying and caring,
Bleeding and breathing,
All blend into
Ever present pain.

They cry for us,
Dry tears.
Standing in sullen crowds
Surrounded by sad clowns.

What could you do or say
today, that  could make a difference to someone's life.

I am not nice because I want everyone to like me.

I am nice because I know there are people out there that are like me.

When they ask how you are





Some more

It's sad how I think this way of dealing with life is encouraged. People don't really open up to each other and I think it's cause they don't believe others will listen or help but I hope we will all keep the faith and tell people how we really feel if we need to

With your sweet lips,
On which oft
I yearn to plant a kiss,
Slander me not please!

My lodestar
You must know
A  drop of gal
The wellspring of honey
Is capable to mar!

Spouses have to be considerate to each other
