A Little Kindness (Goes a Long Way)

You’re still looking fine as ever
He assures me without a single lingering thought
No intention other than to tell the truth
While I am feeling insecure and twice the size I am
The guy across my desk makes doubt melt like thin ice in the morning sun

I love what you've done with your hair
I tell the lady in the shop I see every other day
No reason other than to let her know
While she helps customers with a halfhearted smile
The woman buying her cigarettes makes her face light up like the afternoon sky

I Am

I am your mind—the thoughts of secret sin  
now foster hunger that you’ve never felt.  
You tremble with excitement from within,  
from daring hopes, with which you’ve never dealt!  

I am your will—the choices that you make  
are yours, alone, none other to be pleased.  
You’ll pay for every choice, make no mistake!  
By strength of will, the fates shall be appeased!  

I am your dreams—desires yet fulfilled;  
experiences yet to come to pass!  
Subconsciously, your mind seeks to be thrilled,  
for which your conscious mind will risk trespass!  
 
I am your courage—never shall you doubt!  
Who shall stand against what you can do?  
You live your life in freedom, as you flout  
the rules that all those dullards write for you!  
 
I am your voice—so sing your song of joy!  
The universe must listen to your song!  
Then, when the craft of silence, you employ,  
the music of your soul rings loud and strong!  
 
I am your spirit—shining from within,  
and everyone you meet can see this truth:  
You know and love yourself, without chagrin!  
Go, live life to the fullest! No excuse!

Dear fellow poets, I had no idea this competition would lead to being able to read so many of your fabulous works and words!!!! Thank you all very much, Missy CONGRATS, It was the berry pancake poem that got me into that super happy higher vibe. I could almost smell those pancakes and it reminded me of when I camped and one day we were totally broke and made pancakes of berries and leftovers. Your poem was a great recipy for happiness!!! PoetOFTragedy, a moving touching work, your verses touch the deeper layers of the soul. MRAlph, that was amazing, those butterflies were such beautiful delightfull creations, they opened their wings and flew in the open air all day. Thanks again all.
Untill the next competition, shine on all you (crazy) diamonds!!!! Greets, Melia

Indeed, PoetOf, I had no idea this compo would get so much response.
