Prosery 1/20/20: “The Rock cries out…”

Tribute to a King

The Rock cries out to us today,    
“Rejoice in the memory of a legend.” 

Very few men will influence our country, as he. 
No individual should try to be superior 
to someone who so openly loved others. 

You may stand upon me, but please do not  
squash me or my memory. 
Find comfort in being as good as he. 

It is with pride that we may remember  
to be kind to all people 
no matter their race or color. 

Be proud to be kind, be happy to be strong 
in your beliefs.  
be open to diversity. 

Embrace change, encourage acceptance 
But do not hide your face. 
There is no shame in doing what is right. 

We must take pride in honor 
and teach those younger and less wise 
what it means to be human.  

Take pride in knowing  
you always do the right thing.

  1. I strove to try and teach my sons’ to do the right thing no matter how hard it seemed. What I saw was even leading by example does not mean the desired lesson will be learned.

    It seems that one must learn how wrong doing the wrong thing is and feels, before doing the right thing is embraced.

    1. Unfortunately in this day and age sometimes even minor wrongs are brushed off so learning can’t occur. That is when you want to point out the wrong, when it is only a little wrong! Don’t wait until the problem is larger!
