The best of them

I searched

far and wide

for the best of the best.

I walked across deserts,

and sailed across oceans.

I flew through bright blue skies,

and dark grey clouds

with no end in sight.

I searched Earth’s centre,

its edges,

and all that was in between them.

The answers were many.

But, only one struck my core.

Sticking to my heart

like magnet to iron.

I share them with you

at no cost

save with love

and well wishes.

“The best of the best is the,

shoulder that supports

the hand that lifts

the mouth that encourages


the tongue that speaks no evil.”

In life’s rain and storm,

One’s calm is the other’s peace.

One’s growth is for all.
