what does it take
to get over this?

one moment to collect my thougts
without being shoved into the ground

one nice thing said to me today
as I walk on this earth

one place where I feel
safer than I do now

one person just being nice
and making me smile

One friend who I can count on
to be there when I need them,

the ability to help at least one
other human hurt like me

one may be a small number,
but one small thing may just

Be what I need

One survivor connecting with others
who were hurt like me

ONE

two

three

four

five..............as many that walk my way

my gift is healing me and helping others to heal

and being able to smile and watch others smile back even when a smile might not appear

it is that moment when the smile is needed most

It starts with one kind gesture
one moment of kindness

one moment to collect my thougts
as I smile back at you

one nice thing said to you today
as you walk on this earth

one place where you feel
safer than you do now

one person just being nice
and making you smile

One person is all it takes

One

\:\)

this is an awesome piece, and a great reminder not only to keep an eye out for one positive person, place or thing in each day to bring a positive ray of light, but also that it doesnt take much to be a ray in someone else life as well.

thank you very much for giving this warm ray of light... it really is a good thing we have each other.

peace brother,
-cpt.

Michael,

What a cool observation, and you are so right. So often all it takes is for ONE person to reach out.

I had many who reached out when I first came here, but yes, there was one in particular. This is just a reminder to him that I remember him and will always be grateful.

Much love,
Larry
