Prints on a finger,
are each made unique.
Eye on the trigger,
no need to critique.

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

Souls roam this grand earth,
to find a purpose,
not knowing their worth,
float at the surface.

Live and let live,
refrain from judging,
strain with a sieve,
stains that are smudging.

Forgive and accept,
by searching within.
Try not to expect,
just savor the wins.

Live and let live,
respect distinct ways.
Decide to give,
pure love everyday.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. That last stanza, though… Just wonderful. Can you imagine a world where everyone adopted the motto of “live and let live?” I think poets are among the few who are well-equipped enough to lead the way into such a future. Here’s hoping, right? Beautifully done, Grace. πŸ™‚

  2. This poem gives a beautiful message and reminder how to live. Good rhyming lines, Grace πŸ‘ŒπŸ’πŸ’–
