Do we practice what we preach? A little more soul searching.

Walk the Talk

It's simple to speak of peace
But can you live it?
It's easy to preach forgiveness
But are you forgiving?
It's natural to search for love
But are you loving?
It's one thing to offer your all
But are you truly giving?

Damaged, we seek acceptance
But are we accepting?
Despise being judged by others
But are you judging?
It's one thing to have a set of rules
But are we abiding?
Until we respect others for who they are
Are we worthy of respecting?

Isn't life itself the greatest blessing?
Every chance meeting holds a lesson
Plenty out there talk the talk....
But be honest, do you walk the walk?
