We all have gifts that make us special.
Will you make it a point to use your gift
to touch someone else at the heart?
Every now and then, we all need a lift.
Most people only think about touching physically
so they can get pleasure in return.
But try to touch someone's emotions, their passions!
If you don't know how, there is room to learn.
Help a young person change their outlook
Some kids feel they have nothing to live for,
which is why many stay in all kinds of trouble.
Endeavor to point a child toward a successful door.
Without question, the ability is in you.
I see you exhibiting talent all the time.
Don't waste all of your minutes on Facebook.
There are more constructive ways to use your mind.
Teaching content alone doesn't make me a teacher.
We touch kids’ lives in many ways.
My boys need to see a man wearing a suit.
All men are not easily disposed to anger and rage.
We smile. We dance. We laugh.
All of us don't let out pants hang low.
Some of us know to say “please” and “thank you.”
Disrespecting women is a no-no.
My every intention is to touch someone at the heart.
There are kids who don't even feel loved at home.
Hence, they look for family connections in the streets
and comply with crimes so they don't have to feel all alone.
I wish more fathers would raise their kids.
Too many think only about touching women physically.
Their children need dad to touch them at the heart.
I tip my hat
to all of the real men
who raise their kids
and stick around
even during the hard times.
