I can only describe this piece with one word: balance. Short, but impactful at the same time. I wish everyone knew how to leave by this short but strong principles.

"What Grace Means to Me" is a poetic journey,
A tapestry of beauty, in verses set free.
It's a dance of elegance in each word's embrace,
A reflection of serenity, a soft-spoken grace.

The poet explores, with a delicate touch,
The essence of grace, which means so much.
It's the gentle raindrop on a leaf in the dawn,
The way kindness blooms, like a flower reborn.

With metaphors woven like threads in the breeze,
The verses invite readers to ponder and tease,
The meaning of grace, both simple and grand,
In this heartfelt poem, crafted by hand.

Each stanza unfolds, like petals unfurling,
A portrait of grace in this world, so swirling.
It's a reminder to cherish what's tender and true,
In "What Grace Means to Me," we find a view.

So, read this poem with an open heart's door,
And discover the grace that it has in store.
For in these verses, you'll surely agree,
Grace is a treasure, for both you and me.

Grace is joy that we received after the storms we encountered. The inner peace we finally have after all those sufferings. Thanks for your piece.

"To be brave, but not fearless". I so much like this poem. Despite the fear we have the courage to take action and brave is more useful to humans.

I've been all about trying to change the cards lately. Thanks, Scott, for the perspective.

This poem beautifully explores the delicate balance of virtues and values that define a person's character. It emphasizes the importance of self-awareness, self-control, and personal growth. The poet skillfully portrays the idea of being confident without arrogance, brave but not fearless, and motivated without greed. The poem also highlights the significance of inner peace and the ability to navigate life's challenges with resilience.

The concept of choosing to make your current situation a personal "rock bottom" before hitting actual rock bottom is thought-provoking, suggesting that one can proactively take control of their life's direction. Overall, this poem serves as a meaningful reflection on the complexities of human nature and the pursuit of a balanced and purposeful existence.

Here are some more lines I'd add if I was writing it again. :)

To predict, but never expect.

To observe, but never judge.

To notice, but never hate.
"That virtue we appreciate is as much ours as another's. We see so much only as we possess." - Henry David Thoreau

All the following adjectives in the poem are so close to life...it tells us about so much that we deal with in our day to day living. It tells us about so much we have and get but still we are discontent and unsatisfied. It mentions about our strenth which we ourself convert it into weakneses and fall apart. The poem gives us a broad Outlook towards life and inspire us to cut down all our negativities and deficiencies and make our living much better by trying to achive inner peace and satisfaction instead of discomforting ouselves with opposing interests. I loved the poem..it stands for high regards...
