About the Author
Default Group
I live in Canada in a western part of this vast country where the winter lasts for more then six months! I love the country and its people. My country has wonderful lakes and the Rocky Mountains with famous Ice fields. Ice, that lasts for more then four hundred years. There are still wild life like Moose and Bears - And hunting and fishing is common... Ice hockey and ice dancing competitions are the most popular sports in Canada as well as the Calgary Stampede…Now more about me…My hobbies include writing, exercising, talking to friends, listening to my favourite singers Elvis Presley, Sarah Brightman, Enya, some old songs from 70 & 80 and all other kinds of music, and watching TV on occasion. I believe that writing poems is a very good way to express your own individual beliefs, feelings, and thoughts & I always like to make sure that what I write comes from the heart and not merely the mind. I have a wide range of thoughts and feelings to express in my poetry. The inspiration for the poems that I write comes from sources as diverse as listening to my favourite Gospel songs and music. I also like to be able to write poems that people can connect with and relate. I have had poems published in anthologies from the Noble House publishing as well as International Library of Poetry and received and an award for my writes. In the future I want to publish my own book with my own poems and short stories. I am charismatic, optimistic, romantic, passionate, loving, and caring. Enjoy life immensely. I am interested in surfing the Internet, healthy living, Yoga & Meditation, reading, watching movies and videos, writing short stories, poetry, tennis, traveling to warmer locations. Love Photography - Especially the Rocky Mountains...Watching sunsets & sunrises. Take great interest in Architecture, Archaeology, and Fine Arts! I have a special love for foreign Cultures' - Enjoy romantic dinners for two on occasion... Spending time with my family and friends as well as meeting new people... Appreciate honesty, loyalty, and respectfulness of themselves and others... Music & Poetry has been my greatest passion...Peace, Love and Happiness to All.

A Simple Act Of Kindness

A SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS

"I cannot make a difference"
we hear that said often each day
however, no one suggested
to changing the World
in a very simple way
with just one smile or a kind deed
yes, change the World, this may.

It matters not the size of one
or a beauty of a creed
excuses are for the lazy ones
they are not the kind we need
one open heart filled with love
can change this World of greed
a smile could be your own
would start a simple deed.

Changing the World in a better way
doing our part indeed…
to build an eternal friendship
no matter the distance
for what use would to it there be
if I could not live to say
having a good time while I am here
that can also end one day.

Planning a good time for another week
Not knowing…that the World
Might end today?
Not showing signs of sadness
let the courage stands tall
it really takes only act of kindness
to remember…one person to make a difference
love with a simple dream and a wish
"One million dollar" smile for one
to feel how they stand above all.

Hi Zuzannah. I sure agree with the sentiment expressed.Laughing

Just pondering the world's problems, and our own insignificance, can drive you crazy. Best start with one step at a time, eh?
It's some kind of 'balance' that keeps us forging ahead. Some people live in boxes, and don't live or think outside that box. Others are so overwhelmed by the enormity of it all, they are hell to live with...

Couple of small things for you maybe to have a look at:


(A?)SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS

"I cannot make a difference"
we hear the (That?) say (said?)often each day
("often each day".... doesn't quite sound right. )
however, no one said (suggested?)
to change (changing?) the World
in a very single (simple?)way
(with?) just one smile or a kind deed
yes, change the World, this may.

It matters not the size of one
or a beauty of a creed
excuses are for the lazy ones
they are not the kind we need
one open heart filled with love
can change this World of greed
a smile could be your own
would start a simple deed.

Changing the World in a better way
doing our part indeed
digging (building?) an eternal friendship
no matter the distance
for what use would to (it?) (there?) be
if I could not live to say
having a good time while I am here
that can also end one day.

Planning a good time
for another week not knowing
that the World might end today
not showing signs of sadness
let the courage stands tall
it really takes only act of kindness
to remember
one person to make a difference
love with a simple dream and a wish
"One million dollar" smile for one
to feel how
they stand above all.


We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.

This is very uplifting and empowering. It made me feel revived and hopeful. I can only pray this hopeful optimism will spread like wildfire to those who need its softly burning message the most. You are a beacon, and it shows through your writing. This can make an overwhelming difference in the world. Thank you.
