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 everyday living -
      To the blind, to the deaf and the lame.

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

Give out your love and assistance to others;
      Show respect for their race and their creed.
Let’s engage our own hearts quite well before speaking
      And appreciate those other folks’ needs.
