May I Reflect...

May I reflect...
May I reflect ..
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt me every once in a while and I must forgive them for that.

May I reflect...
That with Metta, friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.

May I reflect...
That I can do something in an instant
that will give me heartache for life.
Let me be always Mindful.

May I reflect...
That I should always leave loved ones with
loving words..
It may be the last time I see them.

May I reflect...
That I are responsible for what I do,
no matter how I feel.

May I reflect...
That I need to do what has to be done
when it needs to be done.

May I reflect...
That sometimes the people I expect to kick me
when I am down, are the ones that actually help me get back up.

May I reflect...
That sometimes conditions make me angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

May I reflect....
That maturity has more to do with the types of experiences I had
and what I learned from them,
and less to do with how many birthdays I had celebrated.

May I reflect...
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others,
I have to learn to forgive myself too.

May I reflect...
That my background and circumstances may have influenced who I am,
but I am responsible for who I become.

May I reflect...
That two people can look at the exact same thing
and see something totally different,
hence may I learn to respect the views of others.

May I reflect...
That even when I think that I have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to me -
I can find the strength to help.

May I reflect..
that the happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything
