Things that Matter!

Mother’s love,
Father’s protection,
Brother’s support,
Sister’s care,
Best friend’s trust,
Partner’s love,
Grandmother’s secret recipe,
Grandfather’s wisdom.

The strength of a bear,
The hope of a sparrow,
The resurrected soul of a butterfly,
The loyalty of a dog,
The grace of an eagle,
The dignity of an elephant,
The beauty of a horse,
The fearlessness of a lion.

One’s jealousy,
One’s greed,
One’s hatred,
One’s negativity,
One’s criticism,
One’s lies,
One’s anger,
One’s ignorance.
