After it All, Gratitude

It’s so easy to complain,

To focus on the seemingly mired darkness that surrounds us;

Easy to walk past suffering with blind eyes,

All too easy to become self-absorbed in a world of selfies and selfishness,

Easy to lose our way.

There is always hope, though, always a way through.

All it takes is one person, one small act of kindness,

One thought for someone other than ourselves.

One gift of compassion to change the course of a life.

Once done, the echoes are endless.

Just one smile, one listening ear, one helping hand.

The power of compassion and gratitude can lift any darkness and right any wrong;

Such a strong and potent elixir.
