Trying To Find The Good - Poem by Atsiylah Atty Garfinkel

My grandmother always said we need to find the good in folks.
Some folks make it easier than others, but it is our job to seek.
She lived in a simpler time when kids learned right from wrong.
She lived in a time safe from preditors and pedifile freaks.

But I try to remember her smile and to be more like her.
I'm actively looking for the good even amongst the currs.
I want to make it a simpler time where kids know good from bad.
If I try maybe my world can be a little more like hers.

So When I see you today I will smile and wave.
I will hold the door open for the person behind me.
I will surrender the right of way as I drive in town today.
No matter who you are, I'll be the good I want to see.

I don't have to be lovely or perfect in all I do.
But I am making an effort. Tell me, how about you?
