NaPoWriMo Day 20: Your Attitude

I’m stuck trying to write a poem about how being a mentor for someone to change their habits, actions, or ideas that effect the earth, their health, or another area of social justice can have a ripple effect. I can’t seem to come up with the right words and it keeps morphing into a different kind of poem. Here’s what I have today after pondering the subject. It’s not the message I originally set out to send.

Your Attitude

Your positive

Non judgmental

Meet-you-where you’re at


Can be more effective

Than a negative




The way you react

And treat another

When they are

“Not there yet”

Can make

An impact

On their ability

To make new choices

To help the planet
