A Keeper Uses Words Properly

A motivational Speaker
An empathetic preacher
A compassionate English teacher
How about a heart and mind reacher?

Anybody who encourages you
to live life to the fullest is a Keeper
They use their words
to make people stronger not weaker

No match but a smile and kind word
that lights the fire
Reciting or writing with the intent
to encourage and to inspire
Is a voice of choice
I hope never expires
Is a pen in a hand that understands
that I hope never retires!!!

This is a controlled fire
that a fire-fighter is not needed
these words are a healing burn
that must be completed

excuse me, can you please repeat
your words took me on a retreat.

      • Haha, sometimes we don’t see how truly great we are till someone points it out! Leadership (be it a conscious or unconscious aptitude), was indeed how I felt!

  2. Now this is powerful and I loved this stanza:

    “No match but a smile and kind word
    that lights the fire
    Reciting or writing with the intent
    to encourage and to inspire”

    We can certainly use a keeper, especially in this tumultuous world we live in. Thanks so much for sharing! πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ˜Š It’s pretty obvious you’re a keeper too! πŸ‘πŸΌ
