A comforting shoulder to rest upon;
to absorb the trickle of sadness.
Encouraging words to ease your struggles;
a loyal friend you will have in me.

I will get you to smile
forming a tickle in your chest.
Releasing a soft chuckle;
causing the laughter to explode.

I see the good qualities in everyone I meet
in addition, never ignore what I see beneath.
I do not judge on one's appearance
for each imperfection has a story.

I must admit that I am a perfectionist
rewarding at times, but also frustrating.
My passions are to draw and pen my words
getting lost in creative stimulant.

Really liked this intensive trip of baring your heart, Judy.  Great poem of much substance!

One can feel preconceived notions with a minimal amount of intuitiveness. These 'notions' are judgemental by their very nature. It's a 'virtue' in humans provided at no additional charge.

Excellent reading Night Owl.

I understand that 'creative stimulant' you speak of...    My dad always said that if we think of the good in everyone, they will rise to that. It sounds as if you practice that philosophy very well!  I truly enjoyed your self-portrait.
