Poem On Self-Respect: The Miracle

Poem On Self-Respect: The Miracle— When you find a miracle, what will you do? Will you be bewildered, question if it’s true? Will you wonder if you’re worthy of such a thing

[ We see miracles every day: an act of kindness, a smile that changes your mood or when you are acknowledged, and you are thrilled. ] 

A Miracle

When you find a miracle, what will you do?
Will you be bewildered, question if it’s true?
Will you wonder if you’re worthy of such a thing,
Or will you wonder what joy it could possibly bring?

If you could, would you pass on the miracle?
Would you be generous or maybe critical?
Would you accept it without any question?
Would you ask others what to do with it, any suggestions?

If a miracle came to you as a sign,
Would you ignore, question, or accept it as divine?
How will you know if it’s a miracle at all?
Would you think it’s a trick, or maybe it’s the Lord’s call?

If you think the miracle is because you asked for one in your prayers,
Would you accept it without thought or look for more, deeper layers?
Look into a mirror, what do you see is true?
That miracle you see is none other than you.
