ggbekp: I have used this poem as a parent, a 6th grade religion teacher, a faith leader, a therapist and a grandmother. The message is simple, but to live it is made so difficult by our blindness, our deafness and our privilege. Thank you, Shel Silverstein for inspiring me.

Yasemin22_md: DON'T TELL ME Please don't tell me I should hug Don't tell me I should care Don't tell me just how grand I'd feel If I just learned to share Don't say "It's all right to cry" "Be kind," "Be fair," "Be true." Just let me see YOU do it Then I just might do it too. Shel Silverstein

sirthunderlord: when i was really young i used to have nightmares about the world litterally turning upsidedown and I couldn’t get any grip on the preschool carpet so I fell into the sky, nobody around me seemed to care. i think these came from looking at the cover of shel silverstein falling up
