Be proud of your softness (Poem)

Be proud of your softness

Don’t let the world make you hard


There’s flowers of kindness inside you

Don’t let them wilt and die

Plant them in the best soil you can find

Water them

And look at them bloom


When the cold and the storms come to destroy them

– and they will –

Build a greenhouse to keep them safe


You’ve got all the love in the world within your very own heart

So take a basket of seeds

Throw them in the wind

And watch the flowers grow
