AS I FLOAT ALONG*…a poem

“Rose Meditative” by Salvador Dali

The inhabitants of this world…
Seek to exist in harmony…
The destruction prevents this…
The pain and suffering delays this.

Each morning brings another chance…
Each moment shares another dream…
Each smile makes all more tolerable…
Each embrace leaves a feeling of peace.

Do what you can in your corner of this world…
To help surround the air with hope…
To help the weary take another step…
To help each and everyone of us feel special and loved.

Would this really be so hard to do?
Would this really take much time?
Sharing of your knowledge…
Sharing of your talents..
Just learning the art of sharing.

Believe in yourself.
Know that you can make a difference.
Know that your feelings count.
Know that you are the one making those choices.

Believe in Yourself;

Luisa Doraz

  2. The last part of the lyric is very inspiring and encouraging. Believe in yourself! Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a wonderful and powerful poem you have posted here my sweet and funny friend. This is simply beautiful. It is 4:30 AM my time and I have been up since 2:00AM just can’t sleep so am spending as much times with as many of my friends that I can this morning before getting dress and going to the hospital. It is about 45 minutes aways from where I live.

    Larry has cancer of the throat and the doctors are trying to find out how far it has spread, what kind it is, and if the cancer came from Agent Orange while he was serving in Vietnam. He can’t eat without chocking and if he does get it down he throws everything back up, including the Insure the nurses gives him. He is nothing but skin and bones now. If he don’t soon start holding something down they are going to feed him by a bube. Well my firend that is all I have to tell you right now. I miss everyone but there isn’t enough hours in a day to read and be with Larry and take care of my grandkids for Donna to go to school and work two days out of the week. I do have you all in my prayers and I think about all of you every day. Well guess I better move on and read a couple more poems. God bless you Doraz and you keep on making everyone simle.

    Love Viola

  11. Lovely. Believing in yourself is the first step to many wonderful things in life.

  12. Well said. Yeah, world peace wont be established unless it is spread across this world. Now it is a globalized world. a small incident in america can impact someone in distant world as everything is inter related. A small fight in middle east might rise the price of oil..inturn it affected the lives of billions across the world..

  13. This is SO sweet, Doraz, it really is is all about our own little corners, isn’t it? And what good things we can do with them, more good than we ever realize.
