Prints on a finger,
are each made unique.
Eye on the trigger,
avoid critique.

Live life and let live,
follow inner voice.
Resent or forgive,
each path is a choice.

People roam this earth,
in search of purpose,
ignore inner worth,
to scratch the surface.

Live life and let live,
try to never judge,
we get what we give,
perceptions can smudge.

Release and accept,
dive deeply within.
Try not to expect,
to savor the wins.

Live life and let live,
respect distinct ways.
Strain hate with a sieve,
love conquers each day.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. Live life and let live…repetition of this verse in every alternate stanza emphasises the point of acceptance. Well done, Grace πŸ’–πŸ’

  2. Many truths and much wisdom here, Grace! πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž Each path is a choice, and why has much of society forgotten to live and let live?
