Love, Premeditated

by j.s.lamb 4 months ago in inspirational

Grow into the best version of yourself.  Become what you were created to be.

"Be tender to the damaged. Hug those who hurt."

Work hard.

Be kind.

Grow into the best version of yourself — 

Become what you were created to be.

* * *

Love. Forgive. Help.

Let your soul be rescued — 

Dragged from the wretched, raging, ravaging world,

Escaping the stench of self-regard, pride, cruelty, spite.

* * *

Let hate disintegrate — 

Like rotting clothes;

Reach for the elusive good.

Release the effusive bad.

* * *

Be tender to the damaged.

Hug those who hurt.

Heal the hearts of wounded souls.

Reconcile fractured family factions.

* * *

Leave behind a debris field of buoyant gifts,

Uplifting thoughts,

Honeyed memories,

& fond fables —

* * *

All lovingly left

For angelic-faced innocents,

Launching their journey (head-first)

Into life’s turbulent waves & jagged seas.
