#30daysofpoetry: Poem A Day Writing Prompt. April 1st. Theme: morning

Today kicks off National Poetry Month. It also kicks off my annual attempt to complete 30 poems this month by following the Writer’s Digest Poem A Day writing prompt challenge. Here we go!  Today’s theme: morning

Good morning 4/1/2019

Every day

I update my status with

Good morning,

Be Thankful,

Love Thy Neighbor,

Be Kind.

simple

golden rule virtues

we are taught

as children

Somehow though

In our daily engagement

When we are busy pretending

To be adults,

We lose our childlike ability

To see others

As equal in how we

Love, forgive, and grow.

We become forgetful

Home training goes

out the window

And we often

don’t remember

To treat others

As just plain humans

And so it seems

the hardest ideals to keep

Throughout the day

Are those that show

Compassion and empathy

For difference

So at the end of the day

After morning has passed away

It’s our inward reflection

That will matter and determine

How we will plan ahead

For tomorrow.
