  • Poem: Even the most gorgeous roses have their thorns.

    Nobody and nothing in our mortal world
    could ever be perfect enough to meet everyone's standards.
    Yet that doesn't necessarily decrease
    that person's or thing's worth.

    We will never fully understand
    what another person goes through.
    We could only make a guess
    based on what our senses could perceive
    and what our learning and experiences may tell us.
    We may be right with our conclusions 99% of the time
    yet that doesn't obscure the fact
    that the 1% chance we could be wrong
    could even become catastrophic if not considered.

    It's good to look at situations
    with a more open mind and with best intentions.
    At times if not all the time,
    it's better to be kind than be right.
    Thank you to those of you who already do.
