Inspirational and Motivational Poem

Remind the Spirit How to Play

An inspirational and motivational poem speaks to the soul in a profound way, reminding humanity of simple, shared truths.


Good morning, Sir. Good morning, Ma’am.

Morning offerings to the great I Am.

Thanks, Darling. Appreciate it, Love.

Say more than commands rumbling from above.

Please and Cheerio brings joy in their wake.

Gentle courtesies for human sake.

Beautiful effort! and Job well done!

Encourage every child as a son.

I forgive and I will forget,

Settle wars before regret.

Hold my hand while tears we share,

When hearts are breaking, compassion must dare.

Anxiety, frustration, gloom, and doom,

Spread blinding darkness through the room.

A lifted mind raises spirits, too.

A shaft of light, a smile bright, wavering though it may.

Small words, a gentle touch, turn night into day.

“Save the world!” if you must.

Though self-made Images often rust.

The littlest things in an ordinary day,

Remind the spirit how to play.

A tiny flower, a kind thought, a chirping bird,

The compliant soul finally heard.

The simplest good act,

Takes anger aback.

Offer welcome wishes,

Even while doing the dishes.

Prayers for everyone around,

Loving gifts suddenly abound.
