Small Gestures

I cut a rose and placed it in a vase.
The room became brighter and fresher.

The sentence didn’t read right.
A different word gave the story new meaning.

A boy fell into an epileptic fit.
Ignored, until another boy placed a stick between his teeth.

The weight of the world breaks my heart.
I push the dark away and bask in the warmth of the sun.

      1. I wanted to point out that small gestures lead to big differences; that all it takes is one person to make a difference. The epileptic boy was in the Philippines. People ignored him – I didn’t know what was going on because we never see that here. But another little boy walked over, squatted down, and placed a stick between the other boy’s teeth. I never forgot that.
