The Cracked Pot

the story of the ‘cracked pot’.  There was a lady who went daily to fetch some water from the stream near her house.  She carried two pots, one on each end of a pole with her each day.  One pot had a crack in it and the other one didn’t.  The one with a crack in it began to think about why was it being kept, as it did not bring back much water.  The lady turned to the pot and asked the pot to look around.  The pot looked around and saw beautiful flowers on the side of the pathway, the side it would be on.  The lady asked why question your purpose when you bring so much beauty to the world.  

 
In this story, I realized we all have a purpose in life.

Note:  This story is an oral story passed down throughout history.

Women Are Women No Matter What

The Mother Figure is so caring and giving
Taking care of the house and young
Struggles to hide behind smiles
Chores unending with others helping a tad
Caregiving with some thanks
Teaching creative and innovative thoughts
Strong intellectuals seldom acknowledged
Voices of reason brushed under the rug
Warm dishes of fanciful foods enjoyed
Stitches of wisdom carried to bed
Whistles heard with words of desire
Together women are better at understanding
This world is so much richer because of women

Love Joy Foward

Love it forward. We all are going along in our own joyney. Sometimes, we may need a little more than a hug. Others may need much more than we can do alone. No one lives without aid from another whether it be something grown, something sewn, something made, something learned, … We all depend on others in some form or another. Share that hug, that smile, that light, that love…and carry on. By Pauline Harris

Take Me Away Book

Picking up a book to read
Carries one off on a joyney
To faraway places and times
Characters in the books become more
Alive and guide, inspire, encourage
And yes, warn of fear…love
Each tale taking the reader away
Even for just a moment
Rescuing some. Encouraging others
Time has come for each
Of us to take a look
Deep within and read a story
Taking the joyney as a reader

Important Person

I’m Important, Each of Us Are Important

Each day brings a new incite
Into the importance of being
Each of has a destiny
To make the world better
To leave our mark for the future
A simple smile brings such delight
To one and all, for with that one gesture
A whole world of joy awakens
Loving kindness and hope
Inspiring mountains to move once again
Spreading the joy to the living
Sharing smiles and more
Enjoy life and give Heartsmiles

Egocentric People Unite

Surely, everything written by me is
Solely and completely about you, NOT
Single subjects may declare you are
But for all intensive purposes, no
Subjects of my writing are mine
Sometimes made up, real in parts
However if you think you are one
You are really on your egocentric self
Alas, here I write to be
For being true to oneself is
By far the best thing ever
I wish you well in your
Endeavor and carry on reading
By Pauline Harris
