Affecting

 

     An influential soul can affect a life. 
     If we are lucky, someone comes along when we are lost or misplaced and makes an impression that lasts a lifetime.  Sometimes all we need is a boost or a new direction to get us going on our way.  It is those people who realize that their influence has possibilities – and who realize that possibilities are endless — who affect lives. 
     Quite often, it is a teacher who is that influential soul. Your life path may be altered by their inspiration, motivation, imagination or subtle persuasion.
     The right person at the right time.

Affecting

It might be only one simple gesture
that changes the course of things

One turn of phrase, or turn in the road
One solid notion that a teacher brings.
An influential soul, who can affect a life
The extra yard, that goes an extra mile
The ability to inspire a want to aspire 
That singular soul, who finds the smile.

Positive thinking, meets untapped potential
Opening a mind, by opening a door 
Initiating the urge to take on the world
Lessening the less, to motivate the more.
 Noticing that possibilities are indeed endless
Giving more of yourself, despite the clock

The right person at the right time
You’re welcomed in, yet you always knock.

Making a difference in their world
by sharing what’s unique inside of you
That place where experiences live 
and understanding comes into view.
Where your common sense prevails
Expressed, in uncommon ways
Where your perception turns a page
and affects their future days.

Every year brings renewed opportunity
with a new group, beginning anew 
Fresh influences and malleable clay 
Shaping character with what you do.
You matter in these impressionable minds
It’s the substance that’s in your style 
Asking only for an honest effort 
You make it worth their while.

Inspiration found, with subtle persuasion
Motivation, to where you shine the light
Imagination, in the eyes of tomorrow 
  The vision to see the higher height.
Encouragement and understanding

Providing balance to their uphill climb
An unselfish stamp on an emerging life
The right person at the right time.

Making a difference in this world
by sharing the life inside of you
That place where experience lies 
and humility comes into view.
Where your common sense prevails
Expressed, in uncommon ways
Where perception turns an important page
and affects their future days.

For all the right reasons,
you affect the rhyme.
The right person
at the right time.

 

Perpetuity

Perpetuity
It’s not the barrel of a gun
but it’s aimed
right at you
An accusatory tone
loaded
with pointed words
Cutting
Gutting
Sharp as knives
Unfounded
Ungrounded
Affecting lives

An unyielding hostility

cast out
with icy purpose
A dark and bitter place 
beyond
the point of no return
Weakness
Bleakness
Harsh and cold
Automatic
Autocratic
Purposefully oversold
Unforgiven
Unforgotten

To have and to hold
Unbending
Never-ending
Perpetually told

Affecting (I)

 

 

An influential soul can affect a life.  If we are lucky, someone comes along when we are lost or misplaced and makes an impression that lasts a lifetime.  Sometimes all we need is a boost or a new idea to get us going on our way.  Your situation may be altered by their inspiration, motivation, imagination or subtle persuasion.    It is those people who realize that their influence has possibilities – and who realize that possibilities are endless — who affect lives.  Quite often it is a teacher…who is that influential soul.

Making a difference in this world
by sharing the unique inside of you
That place where experiences live
And understanding comes into view.
Where common sense prevails
Expressed in uncommon ways
When your perception turns a page
Invigorating their future days.
  
Every year brings the chance to restart
Just beginning for this group of anew
Clean and fresh handful of malleable clay
Molding with character the essence of you.
To influence a next wave of inclination
Possibilities seem endless despite the clock
Pleasant surprises as you open new doors
You are welcomed in, yet you always knock.
 
Doing your level best
to reduce their uphill climb…
to put reason with the rhyme.
Taking it upon yourself to affect…
The right person at the right time.
 
You matter over impressionable minds
It’s the substance that’s in your style
An ability to inspire a want to aspire
The way your ways make them smile.
Days in your work and nights in your home
Reaching out to theirs and affecting yours
Enhancing their urge to take on the world
Lessening the ‘lesses’ and motivating the mores.
 
Doing your level best
to reduce their uphill climb…
putting some reason with the rhyme.
Safe at home in your happy place…
The right person at the right time.
 
It might be only one simple gesture
That changes their course of things
One turn of phrase or turn in the road
Or one solid notion that a teacher brings.
Inspiration found in subtle persuasion
Motivation in the way we shine the light
Imagination in the eyes of tomorrow
Often as simple as wrong versus right.
 
Making a difference in this world

That place where experience lies
And humility comes into view.
Where common sense prevails
Expressed in uncommon ways
When your perception turns a page
And it affects their future days.
 
Doing your level best
to reduce their uphill climb
to put reason with the rhyme…
An unselfish stamp on a life…
The right person at the right time.
