Fay Slimm.

Show Me.



Show Me.


Take me aside and show me an
attitude that over-rides
doubt and is non-judgemental,

a love that tries hard to provide
reasons for misbehaviour,
finds ways of preventing fights
and prays for both
victim and for the perpetrator.


Guide me to traits that relieve
hidden pain and exist
to aid true friendship survival,

show me acts that will outshine
hate, researches facts
with care that dares to reprieve, 
which faces then forgives 
trials with more understanding.


Many harshly meant slights fail
to ignite if shown
tender compassion, awareness
that nurtures kinship
and feeds ire comforting food,

so do hear this request I pray,
take away pride
and teach me the caring way
to best live my life.

    Now there's a prayer and a half. But i reckon the solution is granted to most who become a parent. Oh not right away with that wriggling noisy attention seeking bundle of fun and squeels. But as he/she/they grow it occurs. Unconditional love they call it. The spin offs from this milestone provide all you have asked for in your prayer.
