Not a poem I have written, but one that speaks to me on this day and also inspires.
Many know me as good natured, a soft touch, and a large heart. I give all I am to others to support them, at times to my own detriment. I have my own inner struggles, some I have shared, some I won’t. I believe that each one of us is in this world for a reason, whatever it may be. For some, a sense of normalcy we don’t have in RL, a place of peace in a world of chaos, to feel “normal”, accepted, to explore, to be our true selves, to seek like minded individuals when it feels that no one else sees the world as we do, to not feel alone.
In our world of Second Life, I believe this statement with my whole heart:
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind. Always.”
Patience. Kindness. Understanding. Acceptance. If we can’t find these in this world, where can we ever hope to find them? Speak with kindness. Listen with understanding. Be patient with others. Accept others for who they are, even if we don’t understand.
“Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me.”
