Love Poems/Reflective Poems

Give Out Love

We should give love to others around us -
     And to those who are not quite the same;
To the people who struggle with learning,
      To the blind, to the the deaf and the lame.

Human beings need love and affection 
       And respect for the people they are,
For both taunting and teasing is hurtful
     And can leave an emotional scar.

Give out love and assistance to others.
      Show acceptance to race and to creed.
Let’s engage our own hearts before speaking
      And appreciate other folks’ needs.
