I’ve always wondered how some of the most touching, inspiring, motivating words are from unknown sources. Here is a poem my Mom once wrote in a greeting card for me.
Every other day, as I look through some old stuff, I find something from her. Sometimes, it feels like a sign, a message. Sometimes, pure inspiration.
Truth is, we all have the incredible power within us to make positive changes to ourselves and to those around us.
Here is the poem.
The Power of One
by Author Unknown
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true.
One life can make the difference,
You see, It’s Up to You!
Yes, I know the title of this poem is “It’s Up To You” but I prefer “The Power Of One”
