Little Things Matter Much (New)


It’s the small droplets of water
That can a vast ocean form
It’s the tiny gentle breezes,
That can become a raging storm.
It’s the mere acts of bravery
That can a war win
It’s the small acts of lying
That’s part of a mortal sin.

It’s an unimportant day
That makes up an entire year
And unexplained hurt and sorrow
Are transformed into an aching tear
It’s the unaccountable seconds
That form the hands of time
And its cleverly syncronised words
That make up a heart warming rhyme.

It’s the multiple acts of kindness
That help live a fulfilling life
But unrelenting hate and bitterness
Can cause unnecessary strife
For intense exhilarations begin
With just a simple smile
And small deeds of appreciation
Do make life worthwhile.

It’s the hope that God in the darkest hour
Will the faintest prayer still heed
It’s the knowledge that satisfaction can be found
In doing a random kind deed
For eventually, happiness cannot be measured
In materialistic things and such
It can be found only in small instances
Coz it’s the LITTLE THINGS THAT MATTER MUCH.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
