Happy Thoughts – Let Me Be Poem

by Kelsey Norwood

in Randomness

This week’s “Happy Thought” is a poem that I memorized a while ago. I love memorizing poems and quotes for a few reasons. Memorizing makes me feel like my brain is going to last longer and I also like to be able to think about happy and uplifting things when there’s nothing else to think about. I find my mind coming back to the poems and quotes that I have memorized at random times. My weekly happy thoughts posts are really to help you have happy thoughts, SOooo, start thinking!

Let Me Be

Let me be a little kinder,
Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me;
Let me praise a little more.
Let me be when I am weary,
Just a little bit more cheery,
Let me serve a little better
Those that I am striving for.

Let me be a little braver
When temptation bids me waver;
Let me strive a little harder
To be all that I should be.
Let me be a little meeker
With the brother that is weaker,
Let me think more of my neighbor
And a little less of me.

This poem just makes me feel so motivated to try harder to “be all that I should be.” I hope you like it!

I learned this when I was very young at school… and always I remember it
specially if I want to give an advice to somebody…
as for me I already learned from it…and I apply it first on myself…
