Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Standard

The events in Haiti are a sign

Climate change is real

If you don’t save

Mother Earth

She can’t support you

Here is what you can do

But mostly

You heard it before

But it is true

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

That is the least

Amount of respect

You can give

Mother Earth

-Jennie Nawrocki

Let Love In

Standard

Who you love

Some say

Is a match

A completion

an opposite

Right away

Or grew stronger

However it occurs

Don’t squash it

Accept it

And accept others

For love doesn’t

Come uniform

Love comes

How you

Need it

How you

Nurture it

How you

Respect it

Love everywhere

Just love the way

That you are

Born to love.

-Jennie Nawrocki

Adapt, Modify, Change for the Better

Standard

Quarantined

Stayed at home

No visitors

Or visiting others

We wore masks

Became vaccinated

Virtually were meeting

But the visits

Still missing

Even though

You’re invited

Once we can

But when

But how

So many people

So little time

It’s time

But reassess

What worked

What didn’t

Nows the time

If it worked great

But if you are glad

It was gone

Don’t resumed

Or change it

Why settle

When you can

Make it better

The time is now

Set a new beginning

-Jennie Nawrocki

Objective?

Standard

We all know?

But do you?

What is the real truth?

Who is the source?

What is the motive?

Bias vs Objective

Politics is tricky

But journalists

Are objective

Judges

Are objective

Police are objective

At least that is

What I thought

Are you?

Are they?

Have we lost

the ability

To be objective?

Only when you

Make that choice.

-Jennie Nawrocki

So What?

Standard

So what?

Doesn’t lead to apathy

Only opposite

Because

You find

What really matters

is

Ethical

Moral

Altruistic

Community

And self

The big

And small

Pictures

That give you focus

The priorities

That decide

What is

Important

-Jennie Nawrocki

Flexibility

Standard

Agile in movement

Bends with the moment

A stunt person

Rolls with the stop

Preventing injury

A corporation

Listens to

It’s customers

Changing colors

Increasing durability

To gain regulars

Teachers adapt lessons

For many intelligences

Stubbornness has

It’s time

But not forever

Be flexible

Times do change

-Jennie Nawrocki

No Difference

Standard

The hate is unlivable

We have to

Stop

Rethink our actions

It has been building

And we need it to

Stop

Decide now

That every living being

Every person

Regardless of race

Gender

Sexual orientation

Religion

Is valuable and worthy

Because believe me

They want a home

Just like you

-Jennie Nawrocki
