Simple as that – Be Nice

autumn

Colours and shapes define our world.
A beauty beyond expression,
Can you hear your soul whisper,
a thank you to the Creator.

Mankind too is defined by colours and shapes.
It doesn’t matter if you’re black, white.
Straight, bisexual or gay, lesbian,
I shouldn’t be judgemental,

Are friends only the rich, never the poor?
Eyes searching the tall and skinny,
or handsome and beautiful,
does being short and fat bring embarrassment?

We need to change on the inside.
Change starts with me first.
Be nice. Be nice. Be nice.
It’s as simple as that.

    1. Hi John. Wow. Thank you for reblogging my poem. But most of all I am humble by your lovely compliment. It’s the first time someone has called me a talented writer. Most days I don’t feel talented. I salute you. Regards, Carol
