WDYS # 120 -A Roundup post

Scribble on the board
List your ambition and goals
Think of the time you have here as limited
Counted in years, weeks and days

Or look inversely on how much you’ve already accomplished
Things that you had set out to do and goals achieved
People whose lives you’ve influenced or changed for the better
Gifted joy with your smile

What’s the aim of life after all?
Do we live to satisfy just ourselves
Or we have a greater purpose here
Perhaps to make someone smile, even fleetingly

  1. I love this poem, Sadje. I especially like this line “Perhaps to make someone smile, even fleetingly”. I often wonder if that’s what small children remind us. My little one laughs all the time at simple things and I often end up joining in. Thank you so much for including my entry. KL ❤

  2. Thanks! I always love when people have the gift of turning something negative into a positive, especially with death! Your poem was a good feeling and so positive 🙂 I am smiling with everyone else after reading your words. Big hugs, my friend.

  3. Over the weekend we went to a dinner recognizing both career and volulteers.
    Everyone working together (in the fire and rescue service) have helped many.
    We recognized the 100 years our local departments have served the community. 🙂
